A New Mexico police officer has been hailed as a hero after his body camera captured the moment when he rescued an elderly woman from a blazing car.
The shocking incident took place in Santa Fe, where police say that 87-year-old Deborah Spear had been driving around town with a flat tire. Her vehicle suddenly caught flames just before the courageous police officer came to her aid.
In the video, the officer can be seen extending his hand to help Spear out of the vehicle. She is reluctant to leave without her cane, but the cop manages to also rescue it before singlehandedly putting out the fire.
Spear claims that she didn’t even see the fire until the officer came up to her and warned her to get out of the car. She has expressed her gratitude to the officer for rescuing her from the inferno before she could sustain any injuries.
