Two Ohio officers are being hailed as heroes after their efforts to save a choking infant on the side of a busy road Tuesday.

Video shared by the Shaker Heights Police Department in Ohio shows the frightening moments when officers pulled a two-month-old child from a car, and began trying to clear her airways.

Bodycam footage of the incident shows the officers picking up the baby and turning her onto her stomach before they begin patting her back in an attempt to knock the blockage free.

Officer Oklander and Officer Sidders worked together, passing the baby back and forth with help from the infant's mother.

The officers hold the child at different angles, continuing to pat on her back until the blockage was cleared and the baby started breathing again.
