Florida Fast-Food Worker Rescues Unconscious Police Officer

Store surveillance video shows McDonald's employee Pedro Viloria jumping right out of the drive-through window after noticing that an off-duty Miami-Dade police officer was lying un-moving in her personal auto, CBS Miami reports.

Viloria was working the window at the McDonald's early Tuesday morning. I see she's like inflating her neck, like trying to breathe, like "ahh", and basically I thought something was going wrong'. Apparently the woman's foot was off the brake.

After checking on the customer and finding her unconscious, Viloria said he rushed back into the restaurant to get help.

As the woman lost consciousness, her foot reportedly slipped off the brake and the auto rolled forward.

Surveillance footage at the restaurant showed the fast-food worker jump through the drive-thru window and rush towards the vehicle.

The vehicle began moving forward and that's when Viloria sprung into action. He did it just as the SUV came to a stop up against the driveway curb.

Viloria told the kids in the vehicle to call 911, according to CBS Miami. The woman - an off-duty Miami-Dade police officer who had her two children in the backseat - was suffering from a medical emergency.

Paramedics happened to be in the restaurant and helped revive the woman, who was hospitalized. She reportedly survived the incident, though her condition is now unknown.

Rescue units arrived and transported the officer to Kendall Regional Hospital, where she was listed in critical condition.

Alex Menendez, who owns the McDonald's franchise where the incident occurred is "absolutely" planning something special to reward Viloria, according to a spokeswoman for the chain, who said that the owner wants to keep the details private for the time being.
