ADDU drug agents help pregnant woman in distress

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Two Albany Dougherty Drug Unit agents are being credited with helping a pregnant woman in distress Tuesday morning.

ADDU Agents Mark Farley and George Camp stopped at Pine and Slappey about 11 AM, where they saw an SUV surrounded by stopped cars and people.

32 year old Kimberly Mitchell from Blakely was passed out behind the wheel of the SUV, and all the doors locked. The Drug Agents and several good Samaritans helped Mitchell until the ambulance arrived.

Agent Mark Farley said "It's different from what we normally do, but it was rewarding."

ADDU Commander Bill Berry said "While the first aid people were looking after her, they brought the vehicle up here just to get it off the street and not have to be towed and incur another expense. So the guys put out that extra effort."

Kimberly Mitchell was treated at a local hospital is recovering.

Agent Farley is the same officer who shot and killed a drug suspect on the bypass in January.
