After the Miami-Dade Police officer suffered the medical emergency, her vehicle started rolling slowly away from the drive-thru line and hit a median, surveillance footage shows. He says the officer became unconscious and her foot slipped off the brake.

"I see she's like inflating her neck, like trying to breathe", Pedro Viloria told WPLG Local 10 News, an ABC News affiliate.

The Miami-Dade Police Department revealed that an off-duty police officer driving an SUV went to the fast-food restaurant on Tuesday accompanied by her kids. Surveillance footage also shows Viloria pulling the off-duty officer from the SUV as it rolled forward. Luckily, the SUV narrowly missed another vehicle before hitting a curb and coming to a halt. Once inside he found two firefighters eating breakfast as well as an off-duty paramedic who were able to assist the woman. She reportedly survived the incident, though her condition is now unknown.

She was then taken to the hospital for additional treament.
