"In that moment, I thought, 'I'd rather save that woman's life,'" he told WPLG on Tuesday. "I see she's, like, inflating her neck, like trying to breathe, like 'ahh,' and basically I thought something was going wrong."
After checking on the woman and finding her unconscious, Viloria then rushed back into the restaurant to get help.
It just so happens that a paramedic happened to be inside the same restaurant and jumped into action. Moments later, an off-duty Miami-Dade Fire Rescue worker entered the store and offered his assistance as well, according to the report.
Viloria said the first responders performed CPR on the woman and used an automated external defibrillator to revive her.
