The Atlanta Police Department has released a dramatic video showing two of their officers putting their lives on the line to save another man’s life early Sunday morning. That man's car was engulfed in flames when the officers arrived and the pair struggled to pull the man to safety.
Officers Adams and Todd responded to reports of a car fire in northwest Atlanta. The vehicle crashed into a tree after careening off the road and driving through two homes, Fox5 reports.
The officers found a motorist unconscious and trapped inside the burning car. They couldn't get the door open or awaken the man, so the window was their only option.
Using their body weight and strength, and risking their own safety, they were able to pull him out and drag him to safety as paramedics and Atlanta firefighters arrived to extinguish the flames.
The driver only suffered minor injuries.
