NYPD Officers Rescue Fellow Cops from Burning Patrol Car

December 20, 2015  | 

An NYPD lieutenant and his partner rescued two of their fellow officers from a burning patrol car after a nasty accident early Saturday in Brooklyn, police sources said.

Dramatic video obtained by the New York Post shows the car engulfed in flames just moments after the hero officers pulled their colleagues from the wreck near Flatbush Avenue and East 26th Street.

The officers were responding to a domestic disturbance in Flatbush around 2 a.m. when a bicyclist suddenly veered in front of them, sources said. They swerved to avoid the cyclist, and careened into a parked car.

Lt. Manwaring and his partner, Police Officer Cedano, who were on patrol nearby, raced to the scene.

Within seconds, they arrived to find smoke and flames pouring from the car’s engine block, and the occupants stuck inside.

Manwaring and Cedano pulled their trapped fellow officers from the car moments before the fire reached the front seats.
