Through perfect timing three police officers have saved the life of a young boy who was chocking to death.
Sehar Wali said it was a normal evening before her son, 18-month-old Zac, started chocking on a grape he had swallowed whole.
As she watched the life start to drain out of her son’s body she tried in vain to dislodge the piece of fruit, Yahoo7 reported.

She desperately called emergency services and in a recording of the phone call she can be heard pleading for them to hurry.

By a stroke of luck Senior Constable Pryce and two other police officers were nearby doing random breath testing.
They arrived at the house in under a minute but Zac had already stopped breathing.
‘He was lifeless, a blue colour I’ve never seen before,’ Senior Constable Daniel Pryce said.
He stuck his finger down the young boy’s throat and could feel the grape but for a few terrifying minutes struggled to get it out.
‘I managed to get half a grape. That was enough for us to start doing CPR and bring him back,’ he said.
Dramatic dash-cam footage shows the moment the police officers pulled up in front of the house and started performing CPR on the young boy.
After a few minutes of CPR Senior Constable Pryce says he felt Zac squeeze his fingers.
Zac was taken to hospital and aside from a minor procedure to clear his lungs was n a good condition
The young boy was taken to hospital where he had to have a minor procedure to take some fluid out of his lungs.
Ms Wali said she would be forever grateful for the officers quick thinking and heroic actions.
‘They saved my son’s life,’ she said before praising them for being ‘true heroes.’
