A fast-food worker jumped out his drive-thru window to help an off-duty Florida police officer suffering a medical emergency.
Pedro Viloria told Miami news stations the Miami-Dade County officer had her two children in her car Tuesday at a McDonald's franchise in Doral. Viloria says she was struggling to breathe when he returned to the window with their breakfast. He says the officer became unconscious and her foot slipped off the brake.
Surveillance video shows the SUV rolling forward and Viloria jumping out his window to pull her from the vehicle. Viloria says he went into "hero mode" and had to help her.
Paramedics happened to be in the restaurant and helped revive the woman, who was hospitalized.

Miami-Dade Police Detective Daniel Ferrin said no information about her condition was available Wednesday.
The owner/operator of the McDonald’s, Alex Menendez, said another of his employees rushed outside to help with CPR.
“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,” Menendez said in a statement.
