Cross Scott was test-driving a customer's car when he came across a woman slumped over the steering wheel of a white sedan with its hazard lights on, the Arizona Daily Star reported.

He broke the car's window with a rock, unlocked the door and checked the woman's pulse. Thinking she did not have one, Scott attempted to resuscitate her by using methods he remembered from a 2009 episode of "The Office" when Michael Scott, played by actor Steve Carell, sings the Bee Gees' "Stayin' Alive" while performing CPR on a dummy. The song has the correct tempo for chest compressions.

Scott was able to get the woman breathing. Two other women who had stopped were able to call emergency responders, who arrived about 10 minutes later.

The woman was taken to the hospital, where she was treated and released, the Daily Star reported.
