Pedro Viloria wasn’t expecting to help save a life while working at McDonald’s.  But that’s just what happened recently when one of his drive-through customers had a medical emergency.  When the car pulled up to the window, Viloria noticed that something was wrong.

The woman – who turned out to be an off-duty police officer – began showing signs of not being able to breathe and then lost consciousness. That’s when her foot slipped off the brake and her car began rolling forward – with her two frightened children in the car.  The surveillance footage shows Pedro take a split second before jumping out of the window after the run-away car.  Thankfully, a fire paramedic happened to be entering the store at the time of the incident and quickly ran to help along with several customers and other employees.

The restaurant’s owner released a statement congratulating Viloria:

“First and foremost, our thoughts and prayers are with the officer and her family during this difficult time. I think I speak for our McDonald’s family when I say how proud we are of Pedro. He is an excellent employee, so it didn’t surprise me that he took immediate action and jumped through a window to help save this woman. And he was not the only member of the team that played a pivotal role in ensuring she received the medical attention she needed. A second employee, who asked to remain unnamed, assisted with CPR. Their quick thinking and action were everything in that moment.”

Pedro was also recently recognized by the Miami-Dade County Mayor, Carlos Gimenez, for has act of heroism:

“Your actions saved the life of one of our officers for the Miami-Dade Police Department”
