Article text:

An Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper is being credited with saving a 6-year-old girl's life earlier this week in northwest Oklahoma City.

On Monday, Trooper Michael Patnode was at the OnCue gas station near Northwest 36th Street and North May Avenue when he heard a woman scream. He learned that the woman's daughter wasn't breathing, so he ran to her, placed the girl on the ground and started chest compressions, according to Oklahoma Highway Patrol officials.

By the time an ambulance arrived, the 6-year-old girl had started to breathe and had opened her eyes.

"So very grateful he was in the right place at the right time to help that little girl," Oklahoma Highway Patrol officials wrote on Facebook.
