A San Diego police detective finally met the woman who saved his life after he had a heart attack on the street Memorial Day.

Diane Craig was driving by with her daughter when she spotted Detective Phil Worthington lying in a gutter. Craig, a nurse, quickly performed CPR until an ambulance could arrive, saving Worthington’s life.

“I drove by, I saw his face, said something’s not right,” Craig said. “I did what I had to do.”

Worthington was out running when he went into cardiac arrest.

The two met in a big surprise during the seventh annual Honor our Region’s Heroes event Tuesday.

The event, hosted by the North San Diego Business Chamber, pays tribute to officers, first responders, and public safety leaders who go above and beyond in their jobs.

Craig was a guest of honor and received a special award.
