Fitzgerald -- A Georgia Department of Transportation employee is credited for using her quick thinking to save a man's life.
Donna Cravey was overseeing a resurfacing project on State Road 107 when one of the contractors collapsed.
She started CPR when she realized the man didn't have a pulse and wasn't breathing.
She credits the experience she gained from working as a health care worker at Dorminey Medical Center for knowing what to do.
"I feel like everyone should try to learn CPR. You know you can learn at a technical college or go to your local hospital to find out.
You never know who you are going to use it on. It could be a family member or a co-worker. You never know when something like that is going to happen," said Cravey.
Donna Cravey was honored with the Department's Life Saver Award for her immediate action.
