West Midlands Police (WMP) has released some incredible body-worn video footage of the moment a baby is rescued from his kidnapper.
In a statement released by the Force, a spokesperson said:
‘A man has been convicted of abducting a baby from his Birmingham home − as West Midlands Police release heart-warming video showing the moment officers rescue the tot following a pursuit.
‘James Dempsey, from Eden Road in Solihull, snatched the boy from an address in Sutton Coldfield on 3 April and prompted West Midlands Police to issue an urgent appeal to help trace the five-month-old’.
In the video below, you can see specially trained tactical pursuit officers as they use an intervention technique to disable the feeling vehicle that had the young boy in it.
You then see police officers tending to the baby to make sure he is ok.
The video gives a unique insight into the truly fantastic work of our police, as their risk their safety to try and catch dangerous criminals.
