Omaha, NE - An Omaha police officer is being hailed as a hero for saving a woman's life, on just her second day riding alone.
Officer Leighanne Loges responded to a call of a missing 5-year-old girl around 9 this morning. She found the girl's mother unconscious, without a pulse on the ground outside her home. The officer called for backup then began CPR, eventually bringing the woman around.
Police would not release the mother's name because of medical privacy laws. They do say she suffered from a seizure. Police found her child safe at a nearby school.
