Man Rescued From Burning Car


By Paul Johnson

Yorba Linda, California (CNN) - Sheriff's deputies in Orange County, California pulled a man from his burning vehicle moments before it exploded into flames...and it was caught on dash cam video.
Take a look at this--you can just see through the smoke as deputies approached a burning taxicab with guns drawn.
They said later they weren't sure if the driver was trying to escape.
However, they made a split-second decision to pull him out and drag him across the street, just before the vehicle went up in flames.
Authorities said the 49-year-old driver had suffered a medical emergency, causing him to crash.
Deputies say the victim, who is recovering, would not have made it if they had arrived a few seconds later.
