A Kentucky State Police trooper on patrol last Friday helped an unresponsive 7-year-old girl by giving her CPR.

According to a KSP news release, at 3:15 p.m. Casey Wethington was on patrol in the Speck Ridge Road area when a female stopped him.

The woman told Wethington that her 7-year-old daughter was in her car, had a seizure and wasn't breathing.

The report states that Wethington radioed to Post 15 dispatch for an ambulance. He pulled the child from the car and began CPR, continuing until EMS personnel arrived.

At the time of the release, the girl was in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at Kosair Hospital in Louisville.
