Police officers Irena Timofeeva and Michael Drozd were the ones who got the 911 call about a child who wasn't breathing. The 7-year-old had suffered a serious asthma attack.

"It's always scary when it's a child, you wanna get there as soon as possible," Timofeeva said.

"We rushed there as fast as we could," Drozd added.

When they arrived, Officer Drozd said there was chaos at the house. The father was screaming 'help my child' and the little girl was motionless on the floor.

The officers started CPR and within minutes little Christina opened her eyes. She's in the hospital and got a visit from the cops who saved her life.
