The officer helped two unconscious people get to the hospital, and they may not have survived otherwise.

CNN reports that Sweetwater Sgt. Jenna Mendez was at a red light when she witnessed the pedestrian bridge collapse near Florida International University on Thursday. She initially thought a demolition crew collapsed it, but when she saw the crushed cars, she sprung into action.

Had the officer beaten the red light, she may have been one of the victims of the collapse that killed at least six people. "I was seconds away from being caught under that," she said.
