Lejeune Medic Gets Towed After Helping Heart Attack Victim

A Navy medic from North Carolina who stopped to calm a woman after her husband had a heart attack in Michigan and helped an ambulance crew perform CPR now has a $60 towing bill.

Hospital Corpsman 3rd Class Tim Moore of Camp Lejeune was driving on Interstate 94 near Jackson, Michigan, on April 2 when he saw an ambulance parked along the eastbound lane.

He said he pulled over to try to help calm the woman, who was near the ambulance. When the rescuers learned of Moore's medical training, they asked if he would help administer CPR on the way to a hospital.

When Moore returned to the side of the interstate two hours later, the truck was missing. It turns out the truck -- parked partly over the white line marking the side of the road -- was considered a travel hazard and towed.
