The Florida Highway Patrol got a call that a vehicle had drifted off the shoulder near Naples. When the trooper responded, the driver was unresponsive and the vehicle's doors were locked. The trooper can be seen frantically pleading for the woman to wake up saying, "Ma'am, ma'am, come on. Please wake up, ma'am. Please!"
Finally, he is forced to break the driver's window to unlock the vehicle and carries the woman out only to discover she had no pulse. The trooper begins to administer CPR. "She's breathing again. Yeah, I can hear her heartbeat," he can be heard saying while still doing chest compressions.
The 32-year-old woman was treated and released from the hospital before being arrested for driving under the influence and driving while license suspended. A breath test showed an alcohol concentration level of .039 and drug screen results are pending.
