NORTH NAPLES, Fla.- A Starbucks barista came to the rescue after a man collapsed outside of the store where she was working.

An elderly man collapsed on the Starbucks patio near the intersection of Immokalee Road and U.S. 41.

The barista gave the man chest compressions while another person called 911. The man, who was said to be in his 70s, could barely breath but was able to speak as the ambulance arrived. EMS says the chest compressions likely helped save the man’s life.

The barista went back to work serving coffee after the man was taken to the hospital.
