NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Two doctors were in the right place Friday afternoon when they came to the rescue of a TSA agent who collapsed at John F. Kennedy International Airport.

Sources tell CBS2 the doctors were at a security checkpoint inside Terminal 4 when the agent fell to the ground, gasping for air and vomitting.

The doctors, along with Port Authority police, were able to use a portable defibrillator to shock the victim back to life, sources say.

The TSA agent was taken to Jamaica Hospital.
