Bodycam Shows Cop Rescue Man Trapped In Burning SUV
August 30, 2016
Dramatic body camera footage has emerged of the moment a brave Georgia police officer managed to pull a man from a fiery car crash.
Police Officer Dan Whitney responded to a 3 a.m. highway accident to find an SUV engulfed in flames against a large tree. A man was yelling for help from a small rear driver-side window. Whitney retrieved his fire extinguisher and tried to put out the fire, then began trying to extricate the person trapped in the car. The impact of the accident had bent the frame and all the doors were jammed shut, so Whitney bent the door frame back enough to pull the man through the small rear window. As he was doing this, an explosion from under the hood knocked off his hat and body-worn camera.
Other officers on the scene described the heat from the fire as unbearable from 50 feet away. Without Whitney's efforts, the passenger would have died.
