ROCKVILLE, Md. (WUSA) -- Maryland State Police say two troppers possibly saved a Montgomery County woman's life Monday morning after she had an apparent asthma attack in her car. They found 23-year-old Denise Murray of Derwood in a Jeep Liberty on the shoulder of northbound Route 270 at Exit 1 around 1 a.m. She was crying and gasping for air but was able to communicate her inability to breathe. State police say she also indicated she felt like she was about to faint, when she suddenly became unconscious.
Trooper First Class A. Kolle quickly reclined Murray's driver seat and started CPR while Trooper First Class A. Crucillo monitored her pulse until EMS personnel arrived on the scene.
Murray was taken to Suburban Hospital where she is currently being treated.
