Hero McDonald’s Employee Jumps Through Drive-Thru Window To Save Off-Duty Cop

This guy deserves a raise for his heroic efforts.

McDonald’s team member Pedro Viloria was serving an off-duty cop ordering breakfast for herself and her two children at a McDonald’s in Doral, Florida, when the cop had trouble breathing and suddenly fell unconscious.

According to FOX News, the cop’s SUV began to roll when her foot slipped off the brake. That’s when Viloria turned on hero mode and jumped out of the drive-thru window to save the woman.

After he pulled her out of the SUV, a second unnamed McDonald’s employee and a couple of firefighters eating inside the restaurant rushed to help revive the officer in distress, who was later taken to the hospital and treated.

McDonald’s later released a statement commending Pedro and the other staff member for their bravery and efforts:

“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. And he was not the only member of the team that played a pivotal role in ensuring she received the medical attention she needed. A second employee, who asked to remain unnamed, assisted with CPR. Their quick thinking and action were everything in that moment.”

While no condition update has been given yet for the off-duty cop, we are hopeful that she recovers from the scary incident.

If you happen to pass through that McDonald’s and Pedro is working, I’d give him a huge tip. The man deserves it.
