MARION COUNTY, Florida – Dashcam video captured the moment when a Florida deputy saved the life of a baby in Marion County, Florida.
Marion County Sheriff’s Office K9 Deputy Jeremie Nix was on his way home from his shift when he was flagged down by a motorist as he was stopped at a red light at the intersection of SE Lake Weir Avenue and SE 17th Street.
The motorist told Deputy Nix that her 3-month old baby boy named Kingston was completely unresponsive and that she needed help.
Deputy Nix turned his patrol car around and pulled off the side of the road to assist with the medical emergency.
After performing several life-saving measures on the child and not seeing any improvement, Deputy Nix decided to put the child in his own patrol car and rush him to Ocala Regional Medical Center.
Deputy Nix delivered the child to medical personnel, who then began treating the child.
The Marion County Sheriff’s Office later reported that the baby is doing very well and will make a full recovery.
Doctors also told the Sheriff’s Office that because of K9 Deputy Nix’s actions, Baby Kingston is alive today.
