Officer Jason Gates thought he was just pulling someone over for running a red light, turns out he saved her life!

Around 11:20 a.m. on Saturday, Officer Gates pulled a woman over for running through a red light. When he approached her car, he found that she was choking.

You can see in the dash cam video that once he realizes she's in trouble he tries to help by patting her on the back. When that doesn't work, he pulls her from the car, and for the first time in his career, administers the Heimlich maneuver. The food goes flying out of her mouth and all is good!

Props to you Officer Gates for saving that woman's life!

Side note: She didn't get a ticket.
