GRIFFIN, GEORGIA - Police officers put their lives on the line every day. Running into a burning home to save a child is just another day on the job for Georgia police Sgt. Joe Hudson.

He jumped into action to rescue a three-year-old boy from a house fire, his body camera capturing it all. Choking from the smoke, Hudson moves quickly from room to room.

Sixty seconds in, the Hudson finds the boy and rushes out for some much-needed fresh air. Even though Hudson is struggling to breathe, he never lets go of the little boy.

The video ends with a sweet exchange that includes Sgt. Hudson giving the boy a 'fistbump.'
