I see shes hardly breathing, and I thought thats not normal, Viloria told NBC4 of his decision to spring into action.
Luckily, a curb stopped the car and Viloria was able to pull the officer out of her vehicle. The victim has not been publicly identified.

You don’t see this often these days...good for this person...he is a Hero...
Just jumping through the window showed a lot of athleticism, not to mention the desire to help the officer.
He’ll probably get canned for violating some McDonalds corporate policy.
Nonetheless.....good for him!
I think this is close to Trump’s place in Florida. Maybe he should drive over and thank this guy.
n the desert I saw a creature, naked, bestial,
who, squatting upon the ground,
Held his heart in his hands,
And ate of it.
I said, "Is it good, friend?"
"It is bitter -- bitter," he answered;
"But I like it
Because it is bitter,
And because it is my heart."
Wow, lucky cop. Kid ready to be a hero and a paramedic in the restaurant eating at just the right moment!
After hitting ENTER, realizing the whole poem should have been posted. But I think, most only read about three lines.
Always curious about what separates us mortals from heroes.
Googling I went...
Ruby wine is drunk by knaves,
Sugar spends to fatten slaves,
Rose and vine-leaf deck buffoons;
Thunderclouds are Jove’s festoons,
Drooping oft in wreaths of dread
Lightning-knotted round his head;
The hero is not fed on sweets,
Daily his own heart he eats;
Chambers of the great are jails,
And head-winds right for royal sails.
And from the long accompanying essay:
Our culture, therefore, must not omit the arming of the man.
Let him hear in season, that he is born into the state of war, and
that the commonwealth and his own well-being require that he should
not go dancing in the weeds of peace, but warned, self-collected, and
neither defying nor dreading the thunder, let him take both
reputation and life in his hand, and, with perfect urbanity, dare the
gibbet and the mob by the absolute truth of his speech, and the
rectitude of his behaviour.

Emerson’s essay made my brain hurt, this was an easer read.
Thirteen ways of looking at a hero.
#4 Emerson’s Hero
Undeterred by philosophy , religion, or the desire for fancy food or physical comfort, the hero advances to his own music yet benefits us all.
All of that, and still unsure of the meaning of’heart’ from Emerson or Crane?
But the search is fun.
Amazing to see the jump..
Nope. Watch the video.
But even if they did fire him, his next job would have been much better anyway.
