There is no such thing as simple heroism. It is not easy to do the right thing at all times and put your own life at stake in order to save others. Being on the police force doesn’t just require courage but great bravery as well, especially during unexpected times.
This 2-minute clip features an Iowa State Patrol Trooper Tracy Bohlen and his extraordinary effort to save Patrick Roark while suffering from a heart attack in the middle of Interstate 35 at East Mixmaster in Des Moines, Iowa.
In this video, you will see the state police performing chest compressions to save a 50-year-old man’s life at whatever cost.
