INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - While speaking with the media about how he saved the life of a local man, an Indiana State Trooper saved another Hoosier's life Monday evening.
24-Hour News 8's Daniel Miller reported Monday that Sgt. Luke Nathalang was traveling down the interstate when he saved the life of a man who was having a heart attack behind the wheel.
Monday afternoon, Sgt. Nathalong was interviewed on I-69 near SR 332 about his heroic act. When he was leaving the interview, Nathalong was flagged down by a woman who said her mother was not responsive in her car. The woman told Nathalong she had called 911.

Nathalong rushed to the woman's side and found that she was lethargic and her oxygen tank was not delivering any oxygen.
Nathalong fixed a valve on the tank and the woman immediately began to feel better. The 911 crew was disregarded.
"Sergeant Nathalang's actions are representative of the everyday work the men and women of the Indiana State Police perform daily to ensure the safety of the citizens and visitors to the State of Indiana," ISP officials said in a release Monday.
