A Florida teen by the name of Jamal Rutledge was handcuffed and being booked for criminal mischief and burglary in a Fort Lauderdale jail back in September, when his arresting officer suddenly fell out of his chair and on to the floor while grasping his chest. After quickly jumping up and checking on him (while still handcuffed,) Jamal reacted fast and began kicking the door repeatedly to call the attention of other officers in the building.
It turns out Officer Foulks was suffering from a serious heart attack, and he likely would have lost his life if it wasn’t for Jamal and the assisting officers that were able to get him a defibrillator! Once stabilized, Foulks was rushed to a nearby hospital where he received emergency medical attention.
Jamal Rutledge and the 3 other officers will now be publicly honored for their acts of heroism during a meeting with the Fort Lauderdale City Commission later this month. No word on his charges though, LOL. Crazy how the world works! Check out the footage below.
