Several Atlanta police officers are being lauded as heroes after rescuing a man from a car fire.
APD Officers W. Adams and M. Todd were responding to a car fire on Sunday when they arrived at the scene and noticed someone was still inside.
“He’s still in there!” a witness shouted in footage caught from the officers’ body cameras. “Somebody get him out!”
The officers attempted to open the vehicle door, but noticed the handle was missing.
Eventually, the officers opted to pull the man through the window.
“Come on, come on sir!” one office said.
According to the New York Post, the officers were lauded by their agency.
The quick thinking and bravery exhibited by Officer Adams and Officer Todd saved the occupant from a tragic outcome,” APD said in a statement. “The officers had no idea if that fire would result in an explosion which would put their lives in danger, instead they were focused on saving the driver.”
The Atlanta Police Department declined to provide additional details.
