Other officers showed up and were able to restart Foulks's heart with a defibrillator then take him to hospital
after the medical emergency last September.
Saviours: Medics later said that Foulks would have died had his rescue been slower
Doctors said that if the rescue had taken much longer, Foulks would have died.
Video footage from the jailhouse shows Rutledge squatting in the corner with his hands cuffed behind his back while Foulks fills out paperwork.
Rutledge was being booked for charges of violation of probation for criminal mischief and burglary, according to NBC Miami.
But shortly after, the officer slides off his chair, hits his head on another next to him, then starts writhing around on the floor.
After Rutledge investigates, he kicks at the security gate and points towards Foulks with his chained hands while other officers rush in.
Some time later, emergency responders arrive with the medical equipment needed to save him, cut off his shirt then use the defibrillator.
Rewarded: Rutledge, center, is to be commended for his actions towards Officer Foulks, to the left of him. The other three officers pictured also helped save him, and will be commended too by city authorities
Rutledge and three officers involved in the rescue are now to be publicly commended for their actions at a meeting of the Fort Lauderdale City Commission later this month
