N.J. Officer Pulls Man From Fiery Wreck
February 02, 2012
A Barnegat (N.J.) Police officer pulled a man from a vehicle that was fully engulfed in flames Monday evening, reports the Press of Atlantic City.
After a neighbor called to alert police, Officer Lauren Keilitz and Officer Michael Diblasi responded to a car fire on Biscayne Road at 8:44 p.m. that involved a 2005 BMW 745i.
When the officers arrived at the scene, they found the vehicle fully engulfed in flames and Mario Dischiavi, 57, incapacitated in the driver's seat.
Diblasi attempted to open the driver's door, but was unable to release the latch and ran to his police car to get a tool to use to break the vehicle's window. While fighting heat and flames from the fire, Keilitz pulled open the driver's door and dragged Dischiavi out of the burning vehicle.
