MCSO K9 DEPUTY SAVES BABY'S LIFE At approximately 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 9, 2018, Marion County Sheriff's Office (MCSO) 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. 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 K9 Deputy Nix's actions, Baby Kingston is alive today. We are tremendously proud of Deputy Nix and we can already see that he and Baby Kingston will have a deep connection that will last a lifetime!!

A three-month-old baby in Florida is alive and well -- thanks a sheriff's deputy whose heroic act has gone viral.

Deputy Jeremie Nix was heading home after his shift when a car pulled over and stopped right in front of him. A woman frantically got out holding a baby boy and told Nix that he was "completely unresponsive."

Nix performed "several life-saving measures" while the boy's mother called for an ambulance, but nothing appeared to be working. Nix ultimately decided that waiting for the ambulance to arrive would take too long, so he took the child into his patrol car and rushed him to the hospital himself.

Luckily the hospital was just a half-mile away, so emergency room workers were able to treat the baby in time. Moments later, the baby was alert and responsive and is now said to be doing well thanks to Deputy Nix and his quick thinking.

The entire four-minute ordeal was captured on the officer's dashboard camera and has gone viral.
