This is the moment two police officers perform CPR to save a woman who was turning blue after collapsing on a beach from an apparent pill and alcohol overdose.
She reportedly had no pulse and her skin was turning blue but after 15 minutes of continuous CPR, she came around, started breathing and began to throw up black vomit.
An eyewitness with a smartphone filmed the dramatic incident on the beach at the historic town of Sagunto, in the eastern Spanish province of Valencia.
The footage shows the cops repeatedly pushing down on the woman’s chest while onlookers can be heard in the background telling her to breathe.
The cops were called to the scene after eyewitnesses called to say the woman, whose name has not been released, had collapsed and was lying unconscious on the beach.
After the cops got her breathing again, paramedics then arrived on the scene to take over the treatment of the woman. After ensuring her pulse and breathing were regular, they rushed her by ambulance to the local Sagunt Hospital.
Two local women told police the same woman had been seen drinking heavily on the beach the previous day. Cops believe she also took a large number of pills of an unknown type.
Local media praised the two police officers, who have not been identified, for saving the life of the woman through their prompt actions. And netizen ‘Vicente Peris Carrascosa’ commented simply: “Congratulations.”
Their is no report on her latest condition.
