The mission of the California Highway Patrol is safety service and security, and those were on display last week on interstate 5 in Glenn County.

Just before 10 o'clock Saturday morning a call came in for a person in a vehicle possibly having a heart attack on an unknown off-ramp near Willows.

The search was on and within moments as sergeant Andrew Poyner was driving southbound on the freeway he spotted a pickup truck with a man outside it on the northbound County Road 57 off-ramp.

He flipped around in the median and found a woman unconscious in the driver’s seat.

He and the man who turned out to be the woman's husband got her out of the car and onto the ground and began CPR.

Another CHP officer Rodney Pozzi came by and took over rescue breathing while Sergeant Poyner continued chest compressions until more help arrived.

Both Sergeant Poyner and Officer Pozzi gave credit to fire rescue personnel as well as the Enloe Air Ambulance Crew and said the victim's husband was very calm and helpful.

The woman remains at Enloe Medical Center and her condition is unknown.
