MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- Three Milwaukee police officers are credited with saving the life of a 40-year-old Milwaukee woman this weekend.

Police say shortly after 6:00 p.m. on Saturday June 1st, Officer Frantal was flagged down in the 1600 block of W. Forest Home Avenue and told that there was a person in a car having a medical emergency.

Officer Frantal found the woman to be non-responsive, to have no pulse, and not to be breathing.
