A 55-year-old woman was saved by officers on their dinner break at a Pensacola, Florida, restaurant. Helen Clark collapsed while at dinner at Smokey's Real Pit Bar-B-Que, where, luckily, Escambia County deputies and Florida Highway Patrol Troopers were also dining. The officers rushed to help the fallen Clark, performing CPR while one of the officers ran to their patrol car and grabbed their AED. After using the AED, Clark's heart was revived. By the time paramedics arrived on the scene, Clark was able to personally thank the officers before being taken to Sacred Heart Hospital.
