Dix tried unsuccessfully to revive Kingston but then decided to put Kingston in his patrol car and rush him to a hospital rather than wait for an ambulance. The sheriff’s office posted dashcam video of the episode on Facebook.
Doctors have told the sheriff’s office that Kingston will make a full recovery.
