Posted March 16, 2017

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 vehicle, CBS Miami reports.

Surveillance video shows the SUV rolling forward and Viloria jumping out the drive-thru window to pull her from the vehicle. The woman, who is a Miami-Dade police officer, was having some sort of medical issue and her foot came off the brake.

"I thought immediately something's going on with that woman right now and I gotta do something", he said, adding that if the children had lost their mother that day it would have been a tragedy.

Luckily, a curb stopped the auto and Viloria was able to pull the officer out of her vehicle.

"I never panicked. I never panicked at all". Viloria says he went into "hero mode" and had to help her.

She was taken to the hospital. "If I needed to die to save that woman, I would have done it".

"I thought, 'If those kids lose their mother today, that's going to be tragic, '" said Pedro Viloria.

Another camera shows what appeared to be the officer's auto rolling forward.

A representative for McDonald's has since released a statement on the incident in which they commend Viloria's bravery, reports Fox 5 NY. It is unclear what type of medical emergency occurred. Viloria ran back inside the restaurant for help, but another customer, who is a paramedic, was already running toward the officer.

But it was Viloria's quick thinking that alerted everyone that there was person in need.

"The real heroes are the fire rescuers", Viloria told WPLG.
