Crossley Scott, 21, told the Arizona Daily Star he was test-driving a customer's car near the auto shop where he works when he noticed a car on the side of the road with its hazards on, and a woman in the front seat slumped over the wheel.

He pulled over and began banging on her window and yelling for her to wake up.

Scott broke the window with a rock. He checked the woman's pulse and she didn't have one.

Scott doesn't have any formal CPR training, so he referenced a scene from an episode of "The Office."


In the scene, the instructor teaches CPR by doing chest compressions to the tune of "Stayin' Alive" by the Bee Gees. The song's tempo matches the recommended 100 beats a minute.

Scott said he sang the song out loud and all he was thinking about was Michael Scott's face, singing "Ah, ha, ha, ha, stayin' alive, stayin' alive."

Within a minute, the woman was breathing, and she was taken to the hospital with the help of two woman who stopped and called 911.

She was released shortly after.
