OCALA, Fla. (FOX 35 WOFL) - The Marion County Sheriff's Office is reporting that one of their deputy saved a baby's life after
The sheriff's office posted on Facebook that 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. The motorist told Deputy Nix that her 3-month-old baby, Kingston, was completely unresponsive and that she needed help.
The post went on to say that Deputy Nix then 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 the Ocala Regional Medical Center.
Deputy Nix is said to have delivered the child to medical personnel, who then began treating the child. We are happy to report that Baby Kingston is doing very well and doctors say he will make a full recovery. Doctors also said that because of Deputy Nix's actions, Baby Kingston is alive today.
