Police bodycam footage showed a police officer helping a 3-year-old in Tecumseh, Oklahoma, who was choking on June 7, who coughed up a quarter that had been lodged in his throat. The child’s mother was driving home from dinner in Shawnee when she noticed her son was unable to breathe and parked outside a car wash where she was helped by the officer, the Shawnee News-Star reported. The mother can be heard in the video saying she believed that her boy was choking on a lollipop. However, after the officer began slapping him on the back, the child coughed up a quarter. This footage was sent directly to Storyful by police on June 14.
