VIDEO: Philly Officer Rescued from Burning Patrol Car by Teen Firefighter and Young Man

A young man and a teenage volunteer firefighter are being hailed as heroes after they rescued a police officer and a pickup truck driver from a fiery crash in South Philadelphia Saturday evening.

Police say the officer was on his way to an emergency - with the cruiser's lights and sirens active. His patrol car was hit in an intersection by the Toyota Tacoma pickup as it made a left turn.

17-year-old Joseph Chambers, who is a volunteer firefighter heard the crash and ran outside to aid Officer Mark Kimsey, 30, who was trapped in the car. Another man, 24-year-old Dante Johnson, also arrived to help Chambers pull the officer out of the burning police car.

The rescuers also pulled the unconscious 52-year-old pickup truck driver out of his vehicle, WPVI TV reports.

Chambers later visited Officer Kimsey in the hospital. Kimsey and the truck driver are expected to recover from their injuries.
