Marion County Sheriff's Office in Florida released video Thursday of Deputy Jeremie Nix's eventful day after he was flagged down to help a mother whose 3-month-old baby was not breathing.
Nix was heading home after his shift on Wednesday, May 9, 2018, when a woman flagged him down at a red light.
The video shows Nix turning his patrol car around and off to the side. He runs to the woman, holding her unconscious child. Nix puts the baby on the ground and administers CPR as the mother and another woman nervously watch.
Nix carries the baby to his patrol car and tells the dispatcher. "I'm not waiting on the medic," he said. "I'm heading to the ORMC (Ocala Regional Medical Center). They're a half-mile away from me. I'm headed to their emergency room with the baby."
