Viloria had already taken the woman's order at the Doral, Florida restaurant. She was having a medical emergency, and Viloria didn't hesitate to help.

Soon after, the woman lost consciousness, her foot slipped from the brake, and her SUV began to roll down the drive-thru lane.

"I thought if these kids lose their mother today that's going to be tragic", Viloria told news crews.
