NJ officers rescue man from burning car

This astonishing bodycam video shows three officers pulling a man out of a burning car last Saturday morning. The officers arrived at 2 a.m on Winant Avenue in Ridgefield Park to a man struggling to get out of the vehicle. It has shown to be a difficult escape for the officers,  however,  as the intense heat and flames made the rescue more challenging. The man managed to survive the escape in the end.

“The first time we tried pulling him out of the driver side window, but I think due to steering window and some other elements we weren’t able to do so, so we made the quick decision to go to the passenger side and that’s when we were able to safely extricate him,” said Sgt. Nichols Triano.
