On Tuesday, Florida law enforcement released bodycam footage of an officer heroically and without hesitation jumping into a retention pond to rescue a drowning baby, even though she did not know how to swim, Fox News Digital reported.

Officer Me'Atia Sanderson with the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office has been praised as a hero for risking her own life to save the infant.

"Sanderson, who does not know how to swim herself, without a second's hesitation, entered the pond to retrieve the child and performed CPR until she was relieved by other responding officers," the sheriff's office stated.

Sanderson, who joined the force in March 2019, was the first officer to arrive at the scene on June 9, according to authorities. The sheriff's office released the officer's bodycam footage for the first time earlier this week.

The footage captured the officer arriving at an apartment complex, exiting her vehicle, and sprinting toward the direction of the retention pond tucked behind the buildings. As she approached the pond, frantic bystanders alerted her that the child was still in the water.
