McDonald's drive-thru worker jumps through window to save off-duty officer

A McDonald's employee saved the life of a Miami, Fla. police officer by jumping out the drive-thru window Tuesday.

Surveillance footage shows the employee, Pedro Viloria, spring into action when the customer's auto starts to roll away, eventually hitting a median. Another customer in the drive-thru line, reported to be a paramedic, rushed to the woman's assistance while a Miami-Dade Fire Rescue worker who had just walked into to the restaurant ran out to grab his partner.

"Her kids were screaming, 'Mother, mother, stop it, mother what are you doing, '" the employee recalled of the vehicle driving by the window to CBS Miami.

The officer then went unconscious and her foot slid off the brake, prompting the vehicle to begin rolling forward.

"I never panicked. I never panicked at all. I've got to do something, because she's going to crash, maybe, '" he told local news, "my brain was on hero mode".

"I thought, 'If those kids lose their mother today, that's going to be tragic, '" said Pedro Viloria.
