Body camera and dashboard camera footage shows Titusville police drag crash victim from burning car as it explodes.
(WESH/NBC News) Newly released body camera video shows the heroic efforts by Florida police officers who rescued a man after a fiery crash.
The accident occurred in February when a driver crashed into concrete barriers along a road in Titusville.
The 44-year-old New Jersey man had gotten off U.S. 1 one by taking a fork in the road, thinking he was still on the highway. Instead, he rammed into the barriers at the end of a side road.
The man had crawled out of the car but was lying in the woods, which were also catching fire, and was too close to the explosions.
Despite the risk, despite the disregard for their own safety, no first responders were hurt. The driver was treated for injuries but survived.
