VIDEO: Man jumps into car, saves driver having seizure in Dixon

Man dives through car window to save seizing driver

A man in the United States has become the ultimate super hero this week, flying through the passenger window of auto "superman style" to save a driver who was having a seizure.

On a Dixon, Illinois street on Friday afternoon, drivers came across an unusual sight as a blue vehicle slowly ran a red light and began driving the wrong way down a busy road. Randy Tompkins dove in and jammed the vehicle into park, as seen in this police dashcam video.

Well, not only did Tompkins bring the vehicle to a halt, but he also "put two fingers into the convulsing driver's mouth to prevent him from swallowing his tongue".

A video posted by Dixon police on Saturday shows the blue auto rolling through the stoplight and almost hitting other vehicles at an intersection.

".Could see the driver of the auto and observed that something looked medically wrong".

The police later thanked Tompkins for his heroism and for coming to the aid of a complete stranger.

President Trump: Kushner is doing a 'great job' for the country
Trump , who made no public appearances Sunday, was expected to deliver remarks at Arlington National Cemetery on Memorial Day. Some Democrats have called for cancelling Kushner's security clearance which he enjoys as a senior adviser to the president.

However, they didn't realise the seriousness of the driver's condition as they were behind the auto.

The officers told Tompkins he looked like a character from the show "Dukes Of Hazards" when he leapt into the vehicle, according to a Facebook post by Tompkins.

"Tompkins was able to get the auto in park just as officers approached the vehicle".

The driver was taken to a hospital as a precaution. Tompkins says he's seen others have seizures and knew right away what was happening.

Sharp said they were preparing to conduct a routine traffic stop but realized it was an emergency when Tompkins parked his auto in the middle of the road.

The driver, whoever they are, obviously is extremely lucky that Tompkins was able to identify what was happening.
