COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. -- A Palm Beach County Woman is facing DUI charges after a trooper saved her life following a crash on Alligator Alley.

32-year-old Cory Webster of Delray Beach has since been charged with Driving Under the Influence and Driving with a Suspended License.

A dash-cam video of the rescue released by Florida Highway Patrol shows the incident on Wednesday night.  Troopers says Webster crashed into the shoulder fence near mile marker 85 around 11:45 p.m.

A trooper found her unresponsive in the driver's seat. And when she didn't wake up, the trooper broke through a window to get inside.  He found that Webster had no pulse, so he pulled her out, and performed CPR until she regained consciousness.

"Ma'am, ma'am, ma'am, come on, wake up. Please wake up, please God," said the Trooper.  Then a relieved "she's breathing. Okay.”

Webster was eventually treated at Physicians Regional Hospital. 

Troopers say her Blood Alcohol Level was below the legal limit, but they're still awaiting the results of a drug-screening.

This is Webster's second DUI arrest in Collier County. She was arrested on the same charges back in 2012.  She also has a several previous arrests for various fraud and theft charges.
