Dramatic dash camera footage shows the moment a motorist flagged down an off-duty sheriff's deputy in Florida, alerting him to her unresponsive 3-month-old son.

So Nix took 3-month-old baby named Kingston to the ground and began performing CPR while waiting for medics to arrive.

"Deputy Nix delivered the child to medical personnel, who then began treating the child".

Kingston was saved and doctors say he will make a full recovery.

Doctors credited Nix's quick-thinking actions for saving the baby's life, authorities said.

The county sheriff's office shared updates on the baby's state on their official YouTube page.

Nix turned his patrol vehicle around and pulled off the side of the road to help. "I'm a half mile away from ORC [Ocala Regional Medical Center]".

An Israeli artillery unit takes position near the Syrian border in the Israeli-annexed Golan Heights, on May 9, 2018. Asked about those statements, an Israeli military spokeswoman said: "We do not respond to such foreign reports".


Nix rushed the baby into the emergency room.

"I heard this one breath that was very faint", Nix recalled, according to the Ocala Star-Banner.

"I didn't have time", Nix said. He is now being hailed as a hero for saving the baby's life.

"This was the most emotional day I've ever had in my career".

"I am thanking God, and I'm just grateful, and so I want the world to know that he is incredible and he's a hero in my book, whether he's a hero in anyone else's or not. My sister and I noticed an officer sitting at a red light and we got his attention", Ms Crowell wrote.

His mother commented to say she was extremely grateful for Deputy Nix's help and provided more details on the rescue.
