Hero Atlanta cops rescue man from raging car fire

Good News Notes:

Two Atlanta police officers bravely saved a man from a burning car that plowed through two homes and crashed into a tree, intense bodycam footage shows.

The video shows the hero cops — identified as Officers W. Adams and M. Todd — frantically responding to a car fire early Sunday in the city’s Bankhead section and finding the driver trapped inside a smoldering car.

“He’s still in there!” a witness says as the cops rush toward the red hatchback engulfed in flames. “Somebody get him out!”

The officers try to open the driver’s door, but the handle is missing, so they pull the man behind the wheel to safety through the window, which they shattered to save him, police said.

“Come on, come on, sir!” one officer says while grabbing the driver, who appeared to be unconscious at one point, the frantic clip shows.

Police said the car had “gone airborne” and went through two homes — including one that was occupied — before hitting a tree and bursting into flames

“The quick thinking and bravery exhibited by Officer Adams and Officer Todd saved the occupant from a tragic outcome,” police 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 clip shows the “humble yet heroic” actions of police officers that “never make media headlines” despite being part of their everyday duties, department officials said….”
