A McDonald's employee in Florida is being called a hero after he jumped through the drive-thru window to save the life of an off-duty police officer who had lost consciousness as her kids were sitting in the back of the vehicle.

Surveillance video shows the SUV narrowly missing another vehicle before hitting a curb.

An off-duty police officer drove up to the window at this fast food restaurant with her two children in the backseat.

"Her kids were screaming, 'Mother, mother, stop it - mother, what are you doing?'" Viloria told WFOR. He says she became unconscious and her foot slipped off the brake.

"I never panicked. I never panicked at all".

A McDonald's employee from South Florida said his brain went into "hero mode" when he noticed a woman was barely breathing at the wheel on Tuesday.

South Korean President Park Geun-hye Caught Up In Samsung Bribery Scandal
She was impeached by Parliament last December over a corruption and influence-peddling scandal involving a close confidante. But Ms Park, who has denied all wrongdoing, is not expected to leave the Blue House without a fight.

"I see she's like inflating her neck, like trying to breathe, like 'ahh, ' and basically I thought something was going wrong", he said.

The still-unnamed officer was rushed to the hospital; her condition remains unknown.

"She's alive and that's enough, if I had to die to save that woman I would have", Viloria said. It's unclear what the medical emergency was.

Surveillance footage shows the auto missing another vehicle before hitting a curb.

Viloria said the first responders performed CPR on the woman, and with the use of an automated external defibrillator machine brought by a Doral police officer, they were able to revive the woman. Amazingly, an off-duty Miami-Dade Fire Rescue member walked in for breakfast a few moments later and, along with his partner, jumped in to help.

McDonald's praised their employee for his quick thinking in rescuing the officer.
