The officer, whose name was not released, asked the woman what she was doing.

"Just looking for my way out and being at peace," she replied.

The officer is then seen on the dash cam walking up slowly behind the woman, battling to spare her life.

"Give me your hands. You are not going out like this today. Stop fighting," the officer said as he clutched her underneath both arms to pull her away.

The unidentified woman was then taken to a nearby gas station where she was evaluated by an emergency medical crew.
