Body Camera Video Shows Kansas Police Officer Dive Into Pond to Save Boy With Autism

The Police Department in Topeka, Kansas, has released body camera video of one its officers who jumped into a pond to save a 4-year-old child with autism.

Officer Aaron Bulmer was driving around searching for suspects near the Central Park Community Center on April 30 when he noticed a small child dangerously close to a pond.

Bulmer was walking toward the boy when he saw him fall in the water. In the video, you can see the child bobbing in the water when Bulmer quickly jumps in and saves the boy.

The child was taken to a local hospital to be checked out.

"Officer Balmer was in the right place at the right time to save a young life," the Topeka Police Department said in a statement.

The boy's parent had been out looking for him at the time he fell into the pond, according to the statement.
