Police in Las Vegas have released a video showing a police officer and a good Samaritan helping save a driver from a smoking car moments before it burst into flames.
In the video of the Friday incident, released by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, a crashed white sedan can be seen on fire before a police officer and a bystander help pull the driver out of a car and drag the individual to safety.
The incident took place near Las Vegas Boulevard and Siegfried and Roy Drive near the Venetian and Mirage hotels on the Las Vegas Strip. Moments after the driver is pulled to safety, the smoke from the front of the car turned into flames.
“As you can see, both worked with only seconds to spare before the vehicle went up in flames,” the department wrote in a Facebook post. “We are so thankful for the quick actions of our officer and the bystander for saving a life!”
Las Vegas police officer & good Samaritan pull driver from car seconds before fiery blast. If it’s your time you go, if it’s not you stay. I had a head-on collision with a wrong-way driver at 50+ mph. I was 25. Now I’m 88. Do what good you can every day.https://t.co/ZUAgwB9U41
