OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – Oklahoma County Sheriff Tommie Johnson III said it was truly a miracle Deputy Jeremy McCain was still alive after being seriously hurt when he drove into a partially opened gate on the campus of Oklahoma Christian Schools.
The gate came through his windshield and crushed his chest, pinning him inside.
Sheriff Johnson called it a “freak accident” and said McCain was driving around 10 miles per hour when it happened.
Doctors who happened to be on campus for an event witnessed the incident and rushed to help.
“They just jumped right in there, started performing CPR,” said Johnson, who credits those bystanders with saving McCain’s life.
McCain died three times that night.
Once on scene and a second time in the emergency room.
“Doctors opened his chest and began to massage his heart for 10 minutes,”
