PENSACOLA, Fla. — A Florida sanitation worker doing his regular rounds rescued a woman who was having a medical emergency in her driveway.

The Pensacola News Journal reports that Ronald Booker got out of his truck and asked the woman if she was all right.

Then he noticed blood and that she was holding a sweater against her arm. The woman, who wasn’t identified, told Booker she had come from dialysis and that her blood didn’t clot properly. The bandage on her arm was not tight enough.

Booker says he called 911 and then secured the woman's house after an ambulance arrived.
