A sheriff's deputy in Florida helped save a baby's life after a mother said her son "did not respond," the authorities said.
K9's deputy Jeremie Nix drove home after work Wednesday night when he was "knocked down" by another driver, the Marion County Sheriff's office said on Facebook.
Nix soon learned from the 3-month-old mother that Baby Kingston was "completely insensitive," the sheriff's office said, whereupon the MP pulled his car aside and tried to help.
"After performing several life-saving measures on the child and not seeing any improvement, Deputy Nix decided to bring the child to his own patrol car and bring it to the Ocala Regional Medical Center. Sheriff's Office said:
