Lifesaving Kalamazoo cop makes national headlines story image

KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The story of a Kalamazoo cop who became a hero during a traffic stop is now making national headlines.

The story of Officer Jason Gates was on CBS This Morning.

Officer Gates saw a van run a red light at Cork and Burdick on Saturday morning, and pulled the driver over.

He only planned on giving the driver a warning, but when he walked up to the window, he realized she was in serious trouble: she was choking.

Officer Gates performed the heimlich maneuver, and was able to quickly clear her airway.

After she could breathe, the woman hugged Gates, sobbing in relief that she was okay.

The woman said she didn't wish to go on camera, but added that she was doing fine.
