In an unlikely new role for the beloved mid-2000s sitcom,'The Office' can now be credited as a literal lifesaver.


Cross Scott jumped into action once he noticed a woman (whom local newspapers have identified solely as "Clara") was unconscious behind the wheel of her car. Adrenaline took hold and he got her out by smashing her window with a rock.

Upon noticing the woman was not breathing, he began doing CPR--with chest compressions to the rhythm of "Staying Alive."

"I've never prepared myself for CPR in my life," Scott said. "I had no idea what I was doing."

Scott only says he was able to execute the life-saving maneuver because he recalled the episode of The Office above.



Reportedly, as he was doing the chest compressions, he actually sang the words to "Staying Alive" aloud.

At some point (likely around "I'm goin' nowhere, somebody help me," in the song) the paramedics showed up to take Clara to the hospital.

The paramedics thanked Scott for performing CPR, as she may have been in worse condition by the time they got there without it.

The Office caught on to the fact that they are now lifesavers.



And everybody is taking notice.








Apparently, the episode is actually used to train EMTs and CPR/AED certification seekers:

So, The Office really knows what it's talking about!






Cross Scott, 21, is the lead technician at Jack Furrier Tire & Auto Care in Tucson, Arizona, and was on his way to work when the incident occurred.

After the incident, Scott went to the hospital to check on Clara and see how she was doing, only to find she'd already been released.

"All I could think about was picturing her face," Scott said. "I had to make sure she was OK. That's the only reason why I went to the hospital."

"I imagine, what if that was my sister on the side of the road or my mom on the side of the road? Unfortunately my mom isn't here to see that, but it's mainly for her. To be honest, it's all for her."






We're looking forward to seeing what other functions The Office may serve, and whose lives they may save.

People Explain Which Popular Tourist Destinations Aren't Worth Visiting

Everyone has their travel bucket list.

The list of places they absolutely must visit before they die.

There are those, however, who also have a rather different list of destinations.

The places that have no intention to visit.

Be it for safety concerns, language barriers, or simply that there's nothing at these places that calls to them, there are places some wouldn’t dream of spending the time and money to visit.

Redditor TrooperJohn was curious to hear which places were at the very bottom of the list of travel destinations for his fellow Redditors, leading them to ask:
