VIDEO: S.C. Officers Fight Vehicle Fire With Trapped Woman
At least three North Charleston (S.C.) Police officers helped extinguish a burning vehicle Monday as a woman lay trapped inside.
The first-responding officers arrived at wreck along Interstate 26 eastbound in Charleston, where Shana Porter's car collided into a tree off the interstate ad caught fire.
One officer's dash-cam video system captured the vehicle as it began to become engulfed in flames. Several officers can then be seen using fire-extinguishers on the vehicle as the flames begin to lessen. The woman, who was trapped inside, can be heard screaming.
Firefighters eventually arrived and put out the fire. EMS responders eventually pulled out the woman, who is expected to survive, reports WBTW.
