Garland, Texas — Body camera video shows a Wednesday morning when a Garland police officer saved a man from a burning car a few seconds before the flames swallowed the car.
Lieutenant Pedro Barinault, a spokesman, said it happened around 3 am in Forest Lane in front of the Garland police station.
The video shows a policeman fighting in the heat to safely attract a man.
“Hey, I have to take him out! Hey!” One of the police officers says he pulls a man out of the passenger seat window. The fire swallowed the car a few seconds later.
Before pulling out the man, police officers found a passenger expelled from the car.
The officers who saved them were five-year veteran Matthew Hus and 22-year veteran Chris Hataway.
The passengers and the rescued man were taken to the hospital and were okay, police said.
“We are very proud of the swift response and heroic behavior of these police officers,” the police said.
