A quick-reacting state trooper thought he was going to have to deal with violent situation when he stopped to investigate a truck stopped in the middle of the interstate. It looked like there was a fight going on inside the truck so braced himself.
Instead, it was a panicked teenage boy trying to help his dad who was having a heart attack. That’s when the Iowa State Trooper Tracey Bohlen sprung into action administering CPR on Eli’s dad, Patrick Roark. The entire episode was captured on the cop’s dashcam.
A nurse also passing by stopped to help the Roark family and she went on to help the family in their time of need by staying with them, setting them up in a hotel and more.
