A trio of New Jersey state troopers are being hailed as heroes for saving a woman who stopped breathing in her car along a busy highway.
Troopers John Walsh, Kevin Scherba and Michael Stansfield found the 56-year-old slumped over her steering wheel after she pulled over along the New Jersey Turnpike in Secaucus on May 21.
The woman, who was not identified, had no pulse and wasn’t breathing, the state police said in a Facebook post Tuesday.
The officers quickly got her out of the car and dragged her into nearby brush, where they immediately started CPR.
“Ma’am, stay with us, stay with us. Coming back?” one of them is heard calmly saying in dashcam footage that caught the harrowing rescue.
After several minutes of chest compressions, she regained a pulse and began breathing.
Paramedics arrived shortly after.
“We found her limp over the steering wheel,” one of the troopers tells the EMTs. “We cut her out, we dragged her here, we did CPR. We gave her chest compressions.”
The woman was taken to Hudson County Medical Center and later released.
Police described her emergency as a “medical episode” and didn’t elaborate.
