Los Angeles police officers saved a wheelchair-bound man from a burning car and the dramatic rescue is captured on the officer's body camera.

Two officers on a routine patrol this past Friday in the San Fernando Valley's foothill division came across a disabled vehicle engulfed in smoke.

The video shows the officers help pull the passenger, a disabled man, out of the car just moments before the vehicle bursts into flames.

The fire destroyed the man's wheelchair, but it was replaced by an officer's donation.
