Desperate Mom Puts Baby's Limp Body in Cop's Arms, Dash Cam Records Intense Moment He Saves a Life


It’s hard to imagine how people will react in emergency situations. There are very few ways you can personally prepare for the unheard of to happen.

This is one of the many reasons why we have emergency personnel who are ready to jump into action whenever duty calls as one woman in Marion County, Florida discovered on the evening of May 9.

Her baby was unresponsive in her arms. Frantic to save his life, she spotted a Marion County officer stopped at a red light at an intersection.

K9 Deputy Jeremie Nix was flagged down by the woman who was driving the opposite direction.

“Deputy Nix turned his patrol car around and pulled off the side of the road to assist with the medical emergency,” the Marion County Sheriff’s Office wrote in a Facebook post.

The woman explained to him that her 3-month old baby was unresponsive and she needed assistance, and quick! She shoved her baby’s limp body into his arms in hopes that the deputy could save him.

Dash cam footage from the police car showed Nix performing CPR and other life-saving measures on the child, but nothing seemed to be working. The woman seemed to be on the phone with medical services as the police officer tried to save her baby.

Nix decided that they didn’t have enough time to wait for an ambulance to arrive, so he took matters into his own hands.

“I’m not waiting on medical. I’m a half a mile from (Ocala Regional Medical Center). I’m headed to their emergency room with the baby,” Nix told the dispatcher.

He rushed the child to the hospital, with his lights and siren on, and brought him to the medical professionals who began to treat the child immediately.

Thankfully, the 3-month old has survived the ordeal and will get to tell this story for many years to come.

“We are happy to report that Baby Kingston is doing very well and doctors say that he will make a full recovery!! Doctors also said that because of K9 Deputy Nix’s actions, Baby Kingston is alive today,” the MCSO post continued.

“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!!”
