VIDEO: DC Officers Rescue Man from Burning Car

Video footage from a Washington, D.C., police officer’s body-worn camera captures the rescue of a man from a burning vehicle on Monday night.

A driver crashed at about 10:20 p.m. and when police arrived, the car was on fire. The responding officers reached into the smoke-filled car and dragged the injured driver to safety.

“I guess I’ve seen too many movies, because I’m thinking the car’s going to blow up the whole time,” Officer Steven Hines said Tuesday as he and three other officers spoke about the rescue. The footage released is from his body-worn camera.

Sgt. Nicole Brown, the officers’ supervisor, told WTOP TV the driver is very lucky Hines happened upon the scene when he did, saying, “If he had arrived even maybe two to three minutes later, it would have just been too late.”
