 A Transportation Security Administration inspector at Newark Liberty International Airport is being hailed a hero.

Robert Kennish was working at Terminal A at Newark Airport on Tuesday and getting ready to inspect a Virgin America plane that had just arrived.

At around 6:30 p.m., he headed down the jet bridge toward the plane when he saw an elderly woman on the jetway floor and a customer service agent who told him that the passenger had just collapsed and was not breathing.

“I checked her airway to see if she was breathing, I checked her pulse in her arm, I checked her pulse in her neck. There was no pulse,” Kennish told WCBS 880′s Marla Diamond.

The former police officer and Air Marshal immediately began CPR.
