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.

.039 is far from "lethal" and only 1/2 the legal limit in my state, but could be a typo. .39 is only doable if the person practices awhile as it's pretty close to lethal.
A few years back an elderly woman was stopped while driving a moped without a helmet and the officer thought something was "off" about her. So he did the field test - passed, then a final check with the breathalyzer and the old soak blew over .5 and had to be taken to the hospital for a blood test as the cop didn't believe his handheld.
.39 is 3x's+ times the legal limit used in the 1970's. We already know her IQ is that of a idiot. But now I wonder how many brain cells she has left. Because there is no telling how long she was in arrest, not breathing and technically dead.
