An off-duty NYPD police officer saved a 59-year-old woman and her dog from a fiery car wreck on the Taconic State Parkway in upstate New York early Thursday, according to the New York Post.

Officer James Talbert came upon the burning Toyota lying on its passenger side on the side of the road.

He used a glass breaker device on his keychain to shatter the sunroof and free the disoriented woman and her Yorkshire Terrier.

"I saw the flames getting bigger," Talbert told the Post, saying that his training immediately kicked into gear, adding that it "felt like a normal day on patrol."
