Dramatic video shows Colorado police officer helping save passenger from burning vehicle

Police in Colorado have released video showing the moment an officer helped save the life of a passenger trapped inside a burning vehicle before it was consumed by flames. 

Longmont Police Officer Justin Hill responded to the single-vehicle crash scene Sept. 1, in which alcohol was suspected as a contributing factor, according to Longmont Public Safety. 

“When Officer Hill arrived, the car was on fire, with one of the parties still trapped inside,” it said in a statement. “Officer Hill, a citizen, and a passenger bent the car’s window frame off the vehicle and freed the male. 

“The male was released from the vehicle moments before the entire vehicle was fully engulfed in flames.

 

Longmont is located near Boulder, north of Denver
