Police Officers Save a Man from a Burning Car While He Was Having a Seizure


Five officers with the Atlanta Police Department are being rightfully celebrated as heroes after saving a man’s life from a nightmare situation. The officers responded to a car accident and upon arrival, one of the officers recognized the person in the driver’s seat was having a seizure.

This footage is truly wild. We see the officers sprinting onto the scene. A fire extinguisher was already being used on the car that was clearly on fire and creating a potentially lethal situation. Then, using a retractable baton one of the officers smashed in a window after being unable to open the doors. Once the window was smashed, the police were able to quickly unlock the door and get the driver out safely before the flames engulfed him inside.

The City of Atlanta Police Department named the five heroes in a Facebook post as Sgts. J. Sutton and D. Davis, and Officers A. Ruffin, S. Verrelien and M. Bouquette. According to the FB post below andLawandCrime, medical attention was required for the driver who was suffering from a seizure and the officers who rescued him but the Facebook post suggests that everyone is expected to be okay.
