A juvenile in Floria is being hailed as a hero after he helped save the life of the officer who arrested him.

Jamal Rutledge was being processed into a Fort Lauderdale jail when his arresting officer, Franklin Foulks, fell off his stool and began grabbing his chest.

As shown in the above video, Rutledge, who was sitting nearby in handcuffs, got up and began kicking the gate and yelling to get the other officers’ attention.

Officers then rushed in, began CPR, called the paramedics and gave Foulks a jolt with the defibrillator.

Doctors later told the police department that Rutledge’s efforts were key in saving Foulks’ life.
