When a woman went into cardiac arrest while riding her bike in D.C., an off-duty Prince George's County EMT came to her rescue.
Victoria Wolf has been riding a bike to work downtown for more than four years. Several months ago while riding from Union Station to her office, Wolf blacked out.
“I don’t remember the train ride. I don’t remember leaving the train and going to Union Station to get to the bike,” said Wolf. “I don’t remember any of that.” She went into cardiac arrest, falling off the bike in the middle of rush hour traffic and being saved by a complete stranger.
That stranger who jumped from her car to perform lifesaving CPR was Tawanda Murphy-Watkins, a volunteer EMT with the Prince George’s County Fire Department.
