HOPKINTON, Mass. (AP) - Two Massachusetts Turnpike toll collectors are being credited with helping save the life of a man who was unresponsive in a car at a toll plaza.

Peter Kusi tells The MetroWest Daily News (https://bit.ly/1x3XMBd ) he had just finished his shift at the Exit 11A plaza last Thursday when he heard someone yell, “Help! Help! Help!’ My friend is not breathing!”

While a colleague called 911, the 41-year-old Kusi pulled the unresponsive 21-year-old man from the car and began CPR. When Kusi tired, fellow toll collector Ricardo Arriago took over.

Kusi says the man opened his eyes and had a pulse when he left in an ambulance. Hopkinton Fire Chief Ken Clark says paramedics treated the unidentified man for a possible drug overdose.

James Massenburg, a senior toll collector, says Kusi and Arriago helped saved a life.
