Lakeland, Florida -- A police officer on his lunch break ended up saving a woman who was having a heart attack. 

It happened back on July 3. Lakeland Police say Officer Adam Williams stopped in at Palace Pizza for lunch when he saw a woman standing in line who appeared to be in distress. Upon further examination Officer Williams found her lightheaded, extremely weak and somewhat disoriented at, which time he called police dispatch and requested EMS.  

According to reports, Officer Williams helped support the woman and kept her from falling to the floor and was able to get her seated in a comfortable position. He continued with his first responder assessment and was able to get a medical history from family members and that critical information was relayed to EMS.

The woman was transported to Lakeland Regional Medical Center, where it was determined she did in fact have a heart attack. 

The officer, meanwhile went back on duty without ever mentioning the incident to anyone. The Lakeland Police Department only found out about it when the woman called City Hall and praised Officer Williams' life-saving efforts. 

Police Chief Lisa Womack says Officer Williams will be submitted for a Life Saving Award for his actions.
