John Kitzhaber is the Democratic Governor of Oregon, and he's currently running for reelection. And politics aside . . . if being a complete BADASS counts for anything . . . he'll win in a landslide.
Because around 5:00 P.M. on Monday, Kitzhaber was in his car driving through Portland when he saw a woman lying on the ground.
Before he was a politician, John was an ER doctor. So he jumped out of his car, told one of his Secret Service guys to call 911, started doing CPR on the woman, and kept her alive until paramedics got there.
One of the first responders said afterward that it was surreal to show up and see the GOVERNOR doing CPR on a patient. But this actually isn't the first time Kitzhaber has done something like this.
During an election speech four years ago, he jumped down from his podium to help a guy in the crowd who was having a seizure. And in 2005, he chased down a guy who broke into his office, and trapped him in a revolving door.
According to authorities, the woman he helped rescue on Monday is expected to survive. (OregonLive / KGW)
