2018-11-09 18:45
n unconscious man was pulled from a burning car by two New Jersey State Police (NJSP) officers seconds before the vehicle was engulfed by flames on Sunday (November 4). At around 11.25pm local time (1825GMT), officers Thomas O'Connor and Christopher Warwick responded to a call about a car on fire which had collided with the safety barrier on State Highway 42 near Gloucester Township, Camden County. Video recorded by the officers' dashboard camera showed them struggling for several minutes to open the driver's door, which was jammed against the safety barrier. Eventually they managed to pull the man from the burning car which seconds later, the NJSP said on Facebook, was engulfed by flames. Once removed from the car, the driver regained consciousness and did not sustain any injuries, the police said.
