Police Officer Pulls Man Over For Speeding... Ends Up Saving His Life

August 1, 2014

Not many people can say they owe their lives to a near speeding ticket. But 86-year-old Gavin Falconer can.

Officer Michael Harrington saved a man's life

He was pulled over Saturday by a police officer in Kennebunk, Maine. But shortly after handing over his license and registration, Falconer suffered an apparent heart attack and slumped over without a pulse.

Police say Officer Michael Harrington quickly transitioned from writing out a warning for the speeding infraction to administering CPR. A second officer then arrived with a defibrillator.

Falconer was brought to a hospital and is recovering.

Harrington says the incident is proof there is no such thing as a "routine" traffic stop.
