MIAMI — An off-duty trooper sprung into action to rescue a woman whose car was engulfed in flames following a crash.
WSVN reports that Florida Highway Patrol Trooper Yenir Dinaz Bueno was working an off-duty construction job Nov. 29 when he witnessed the accident. The unconscious woman was trapped inside the passenger seat as her car became engulfed in flames.
The trooper desperately tried to get her out after the passenger door appeared to be jammed. After another trooper used a fire extinguisher to put out the flames, the troopers were able to pull the woman out of the burning vehicle.
The woman was badly injured, but she managed to survive.
“You don’t need words. Just look at the video, you’ll see the things that the officers, all of us, we go through on a daily basis,” said FHP Trooper Alvaro Feola. “This is what we do. This is what we go through everyday. You know, we’re police officers 24/7.”
