The CPR Episode of <em>The Office</em> Just Saved Someone's Life

The CPR Episode of The Office Just Saved Someone's Life

A classic scene from an episode of the sitcom "The Office" helped a mechanic from Arizona save an unconscious woman's life, the Arizona Daily Star reports.

Cross Scott, a 21-year-old auto technician in Tuscon, Arizona, discovered a woman in her vehicle who had passed out and was slumped over her steering wheel, with her lips turned blue.

As the paper reports, Cross Scott, a lead technician at a nearby auto shop, had been test-driving a customer's vehicle on January 11th when he came across a white sedan drifting by the side of the road with its hazard lights on. He said he stopped to see if the driver needed help. Not only did he resourcefully put a big rock underneath one of the tires when he realized the vehicle was still moving, he also knew to smash the window to check the woman's pulse.

According to The Arizona Star, Scott though about Michael Scott's singing "Ah, ha, ha, ha, stayin' alive, stayin' alive", while he gave the woman CPR. He broke a back window, opened her door and had to think of a way to save her. Scott had no prior first aid training, so he had to think quick. That's when an episode of "The Office" popped in his head.

They were reportedly captured in 2005, just months after Hurricane Katrina ransacked New Orleans, causing almost 2,000 deaths. As a result, he was honored by the city of Longwood, Florida, with an award named for civil rights legend Dr.

In the famous scene, one of the show's characters Michael Scott, played by Steve Carell, is shown being taught the proper technique for CPR training by doing chest compressions to the tune of the song "Stayin' Alive" by the Bee Gees.

Within a minute, the woman was breathing, and she was taken to a hospital and later released. Scott says he doesn't bring his phone with him when he drives customer cars to eliminate any distractions. She was taken to a nearby hospital but checked out before Scott even got a chance to meet her later that day. "I had to make sure she was ok".

"If you don't do CPR, that victim will die", Courtney Slanaker, executive director of the Red Cross Southern Arizona chapter, told the publication. "Whatever you do will help that victim and hopefully prevent a death".

Once he pulled over, Scott noticed there was a woman slumped over the wheel.
