Police said man passed out in drive-through lane

Police said two people helped save the life of a man who stopped breathing in the drive-through lane of a fast-food restaurant in Kent County. It happened around 2 p.m. Monday at the McDonald's at Alpine Avenue and Henze Drive N.W. in Alpine Township. Firefighters said a woman waiting in the drive-through lane noticed the car in front of her was not moving. She got out and discovered the driver of the car was not breathing. The woman and another person began performing CPR on the victim, 24-year-old Joseph Dallas Thompson of Wyoming.

Emergency crews arrived and got Thompson breathing on his own. They said he had suffered a cardiac arrest after overdosing on drugs.

Police said Thompson had two young children with him in the car when he passed out, and another person got out of the car and ran away before rescuers arrived.

Investigators said Thompson is recovering at Spectrum Health Butterworth Hospital in Grand Rapids and will likely face charges when he recovers.

Praying for all involved... esp the little children. May this incident help this person get help and truly turn his life around! Pretty cool to those who took action and gave ...CPR! Apparently God is not done with this young man and this is his 2nd chance in life... which many do not get!
