“There’s a baby on that end,” one cop tells officer Alyssa Vogel in body camera footage released by the NYPD. 

“There’s a baby?!” Vogel asks and then rushes towards the child. 

Second later, Vogel arrives where other officers are putting a tourniquet around the child’s leg after she was shot while shopping with her family. Vogel picked up the child and ran her towards an ambulance a short distance away.
