WESTFORD -- Two police officers helped save an unconscious driver after a car crash at McDonald’s Wednesday, according to police.

Westford Police Officers Robert Musto and Nicholas Mariano are being called heroes for their “life-saving measures,” reads a statement from police.

The unidentified man had a medical episode and crashed into two parked cars at the McDonald’s on Littleton Road Wednesday.

Arriving on scene, officers saw that the driver was unconscious. In addition, the car was running, windows were up, and the doors were locked.

As a result, the officers broke a window to get to the driver, who was in distress when pulled from the car. The officers were able to get the man back to breathing normally, and he was transported to a local hospital.

“Officers Musto and Mariano knew they needed to act quickly,” Police Chief Thomas McEnaney said in a statement. “A life would have been lost if not for their swift professional actions. Congratulations and appreciation to you for a job well done.”

Facebook users praised the officers for their heroics.

“Thank you for everything that you do,” Wendy Wells wrote. “We are grateful to have such a great group of 1st responders.”
