An officer with the Orlando Police Department was assisted by a Good Samaritan in reviving a person who had appeared to have overdosed on drugs.

According to Fox News, the man had apparently overdosed and fell unconscious on a sidewalk in late May and the body camera footage has just now been released.

Orlando Police Officer Danielle Torres and the assisting Good Samaritan—whose name has not been released—was captured on the officer’s body camera May 30. The department released the video Wednesday.

"Keep breathing! Breathe! I need you to breathe for me," Torres shouts in the footage after spotting the man lying on the sidewalk. She radios dispatch and begins chest compressions.

As Torres continues to perform CPR, she calls out to a Good Samaritan for help, asking if that person knew how to perform chest compressions and instructing them that they would take over chest compressions as Torres gave the man a dose of Narcan.

The subject was then transported to a nearby hospital for treatment.
