Time waits for no man, and for one lucky truck driver time would have ceased if not for the quick actions of a state trooper.
Time is of the essence, especially in emergencies as this AmoMama article shows after an Ohio State Highway Patrol trooper had arrived on the scene of an accident just in time to save the driver's life.
After his truck had veered off the the road and had come to a crashing halt in a ravine, the clock started ticking for John Depue.
Officer Eric Devers, an Ohio trooper was the first emergency responder to arrive at the scene.
A quick and critical assessment of the situation told him that immediate action had to be taken. Without as much as a second's hesitation he dashed down to the truck.
Inside his vehicle, the police radio was broadcasting every minute, every second.

“Don’t you die, don’t you die on me!”
Eric Devers had no time to waste. The truck driver had sustained severe injuries and was not breathing.
In the chilling footage Devers can be heard screaming in angst at John Depue to stay alive. "Don't die on me!" he shouted repeatedly.
He understood all too well the urgency of the situation.
As the minutes rolled by, one crucial second at a time, Devers fought hard to save the driver's life as he administrated CPR on the unconscious man.
With the man's life hanging in the balance, it was at no moment in the recording clear if there was ever any hope for the driver to regain consciousness.
But officer Devers did not give up hope, not at any second. He made every single moment count.
"1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6..." he is heard counting in the recording. "7, 8, 9, 10..."
Devers managed to resuscitate John Depue a full ten minutes before an ambulance had arrived on the scene.
Ten minutes can be an eternity for a dying man.
Medical responders were able to stabilize the injured man's breathing at the scene.
John Depue was rushed to Wilson Memorial Hospital where he made full recovery.
Our time here is short, and we never know when our final few seconds might stare us in the face. The clock is ticking...
Thanks to officer Eric Devers' fast response, time did not run out for John Depue, and his clock did not stop.
