Shout Out: One of Our Own Helps Save a Life

Shout Out: One of Our Own Helps Save a Life

When John Floriani, a Roadside Assistance Agent with the CAC, left work for the day he had no idea that he was about to save someone’s life.

As John was heading home, he saw a car swerve into oncoming traffic and then off the road. John, a former police officer, sprang into action. The driver had suffered a heart attack and John began life-saving measures. When a Hoboken police officer arrived on the scene, he and John took turns performing CPR until an ambulance arrived. It was several nerve-wracking minutes before the driver began to respond. The driver was taken to a nearby hospital and is in stable condition.

In a strange twist of fate, the passenger in the car (a 2018 S560) happened to be one of our platinum customers who had hired the driver to help him get around town while he recovered from a broken leg. Thankfully, the customer reacted quickly and was able to steer the vehicle off the road.
