BLANCHARD, Oklahoma -

A Blanchard police officer pulled over a speeding pickup and then performed CPR on a passenger early Monday. The patrol car’s dashcam recorded the rescue.

Officer Jordan Jones was running radar on the side of the road and pulled over the vehicle, which had its hazard lights on. Once they stopped, video showed the driver jump out, asking the officer to help with his wife, who he said was having a heart attack.

Jones called for emergency crews and didn’t hesitate to start helping her himself.

“Honestly you don’t have time to think. It was just reactionary just to get into that mode and get going,” Jones said.

They all worked to get her out of the pickup and pulled her to the side of Highway 62. He said he felt a weak pulse, and with her husband's help, they started CPR.

Jones said her pulse got stronger, and within minutes, an entire team of first responders arrived, including News 9 StormTracker and volunteer firefighter, Hank Brown. He took over CPR while the others prepared to shock the patient.

“You’ve got somebody’s life in your hands and I was just praying the whole time, 'God help me,'” Brown said.

After the jolt, they said her heart rate improved and she was off to the hospital.

Still, two days later, Jones fought back tears when he thought about those moments. The entire group was thankful to hear she will make a full recovery.

“It was just the right place, right time. The Lord was on her side I think that night,” Jones said.

Blanchard police officers go through CPR and first aid training every two years.
