Marion County, FL, Deputy Jeremie Nix was heading home when he spotted a woman which needed help on side of the road.
According to WESH, Nechole Crowell told Nix that her three-month-old son Kingston stopped breathing and was in need of immediate help.
‘I just kind of panicked and started crying and I was just like tell me that he is breathing,’ Crowell told WESH.
Deputy Jeremie Nix turned his car around and pulled up next to the woman on the side of the road.
Nix tried to help the baby immediately with cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), but it did not help.
Then he rushed the baby to the hospital with the police vehicle. Kingston was taken to the hospital on time and is expected to make a full recovery.
According to the doctors from the hospital where Kingston was taken, Nix’s decision to rush the baby straight to them saved his life.
‘I am thanking God, and I’m just grateful, and so I want the world to know that he is amazing and he’s a hero in my book, whether he’s a hero in anyone else’s or not. And I am sure when King gets old enough to hear the story he will think he is a hero as well,’ Crowell told WESH.
