Watch as these heroic cops pull an unconscious passenger out of a flaming car.
Body-cam footage captured two Garland Police officers rescuing an unconscious passenger from a burning vehicle after it had crashed in Garland,Texas.
Just before 3 a.m. on the morning of October 13, an officer and his recruit officer were driving when a truck sped past them at an estimated speed of 90 mph.
The vehicle careened off the road, crashed and caught fire right in front of their eyes.
“They observed the vehicle lose control at a curve and drive into the center median,” said Pedro Barineau, Lieutenant -Public Information Officer for the Garland Police Department.
“The vehicle flipped, and a passenger was ejected.
“The vehicle immediately caught on fire.
“The ejected passenger was unconscious outside the vehicle, and they pulled him to safety.”
Officer Matthew Fuhs (5-year officer) then saw that another unconscious person was still inside of the burning car and leaped into action.
Body-cam video captured Fuhs and Officer Chris Hataway (22-year officer) fighting through flames and intense heat to pull the unconscious passenger from the vehicle, succeeding only moments before it was engulfed in flames.
“With only seconds left, the officers desperately pulled the unconscious man out of the burning car before it became fully engulfed,” said Barineau.
Both the driver and passenger were taken to a local hospital, where they sustained non-life-threatening injuries.
The 18-year-old driver was suspected of driving while intoxicated and is being charged with intoxication assault according to Barineau.
Barineau added: “We are very proud of these officers for their quick response and heroic acts.”
