We seldom compare a kid working at a McDonald’s with that of a police officer when it comes to saving a life, and it’s certainly not within the job description of someone working at a fast food restaurant.
However, all that changed when a Miami-area McDonald’s employee saw a police officer in distress, and immediately took action; the surprise role reversal began when an off-duty police officer stopped at a McDonald's drive-thru, manned by Pedro Viloria, who took the officer's order and then noticed she was having trouble breathing.
Seconds later the officer passes out with her two terrified children in the back seat, the auto lurches forward, and without hesitation Viloria vaults through the drive-thru window.
"I see she's like inflating her neck, like trying to breathe, like 'ahh,' and basically I thought something was going wrong," he said.
He continued; "(I thought,) 'Oh my God, this woman is unconscious. I've got to do something, because she's going to crash, maybe.'"
The surveillance video captures the moment Viloria realizes that the female officer is losing consciousness and control of her car, and darts out the window to help her.
As luck would have it, a customer dining in the restaurant was a paramedic and also rushed to the aid of the stricken officer, and within moments another Doral officer who just happened to come into the restaurant saw the chaos in the parking lot and performed CPR, and luckily had a defibrillator in his auto. The officer is currently in intensive care.
