A McDonald’s employee jumped through a drive-thru window in Doral, Fla., to assist an unconscious customer earlier this week, according to local reports.
Surveillance footage provided to WPLG-TV shows McDonald’s employee Pedro Viloria speaking with a woman in the drive-thru and watching as her car begins to slowly roll away from the window. In the video, Viloria jumps out of the window and runs after the vehicle.
Viloria told WPLG that the customer was an off-duty police officer, who had her two children in the back seat when she started to have trouble breathing.

The driver, who has not been identified, became unconscious and her car began to slowly roll away from the window when her foot came off the brake, the station reported.
"In that moment, I thought, 'I'd rather save that woman's life,'" Viloria told WPLG. "I see she's, like, inflating her neck, like trying to breathe, like 'ahh,' and basically I thought something was going wrong."
The car rolled away and stopped at a curb, according to the station.
WSVN-TV reported that an off-duty Miami-Dade Fire Rescue worker happened to be inside the McDonald’s and helped the woman.
The woman was transported to Kendall Regional Hospital, where she is in critical condition, WSVN-TV reported.
