VIDEO: FL McDonald's Worker Jumps Through Drive-Through Window to Aid Officer in Medical Distress
A South Florida McDonald's worker jumped out of the restaurant's drive-through Tuesday to render aid to an off-duty Miami-Dade Police officer who was in medical distress.
What started as a regular breakfast order at a McDonald's in Doral quickly turned into an emergency as Pedro Viloria was serving the officer and her two children through the drive-thru window. He says the customer ordered and paid without a problem but when he went to hand her the food, something was wrong.
"I see she's hardly breathing and I thought that's not normal," Viloria told NBC Miami.
And then he says the vehicle started moving and it was clear the driver no longer had control.
"I ran as fast as I could, put myself in front of the car," he said.
Luckily the curb stopped the vehicle from going into traffic. All of a sudden, help was there, Viloria said.
The off-duty officer was rushed to a nearby hospital after a firefighter who was inside the restaurant responded and another customer who asked not to be identified performed CPR.
