Pennsylvania police revive overdosed driver using CPR

- A police patrol car dash cam captures an officer coming to the rescue of an unconscious driver in Pennsylvania.
It started with a 911 call about an erratic driver.

The responding officers found the car on the side of a road with the driver unconscious and no pulse, one of the officers pulled the man out and immediately started CPR.

Eventually the officer got a pulse back just before an ambulance arrived.

The officer thought the man had a heart attack...but it turns out the driver had overdosed on heroin.

The grateful man later called police to thank the officer for saving his life.

He is not being charged.
