One day in 1989, officer Michael Buelna heard what sounded like a cat meowing behind a dumpster in Santa Ana, California.

When he investigated, he found a newborn baby (the umbilical cord still attached) crying underneath some garbage.

25 years later, officer Michael Buelna finally met Robin Barton, the baby Buelna saved. Robin's adoptive parents were also present at the emotional meeting, his father saying he was happy to look in Buelna's eyes and say: "Thank you for saving his life."
