Florida Sheriff's Office Mourns Loss of Two Deputies

March 18, 2011  | 

The Orange County (Fla.) Sheriff's Office lost two deputies this week to health-related issues.

Deputy Sebastian Diana, 40, died Saturday after a 5-year battle with health complications caused during a 911 call in 2006, when he gave CPR in an attempt to save a 3-year-old body's life and contracted a bacterial infection by coming in contact with the vomit. The boy later died.

In 2007, Deputy Diana responded to another call of an infant not breathing and, using a protective mask, performed CPR and saved the child's life.

On Wednesday, Deputy Michael Erickson, 48, fell ill at the YMCA Aquatic Center while playing racquetball with a neighbor. He later died.
