A 7-month-old baby is alive thanks to quick actions by a sheriff's deputy in Wisconsin.

A mother pulled over to the side of an interstate in Milwaukee after her baby began choking on milk. She called 911. Milwaukee County Sheriff's Deputy Jeffrey Mike answered the call and performed CPR on the baby on the hood of his squad car.

Highway cameras captured his efforts. He says he was just acting on instinct.

"So it was pretty, it was traumatic for me to do it. But I'm glad everything worked out the way it did, so," Deputy Mike said.

Paramedics arrived a short time later and took the 7-month old to the hospital.

The baby is doing just fine.
