A Man Saved A Woman’s Life With CPR Skills He Learned On An Episode Of The Office

Cross Scott, who works at a local tire center, was on a test drive when he spotted a woman slumped over in her car and gave her CPR. He broke a back window, opened her door and crawled on top of her. With no training, he gave her CPR that may have saved her life.

“I’ve never prepared myself for CPR in my life,” Scott said. “I had no idea what I was doing.”
What popped into Scott’s head was an episode of the television show “The Office” in which character Michael Scott sings the Bee Gees’ “Stayin’ Alive” while doing chest compressions on a dummy. The episode, where the gang takes an in-office CPR course, could actually be a tutorial in what not to do. The one thing it got right was using that song as a meter — the correct tempo for chest compressions.

As Scott straddled the woman and began chest compressions, he sang the song out loud. All he was thinking about was Michael Scott’s face, singing “Ah, ha, ha, ha, stayin’ alive, stayin’ alive.”

After a minute, the woman took a breath and threw up. He saved her life! Watch The Office to save a life!
