Police in Burlington Township, New Jersey, praised the actions of two “good Samaritans” who stopped and pulled an unconscious motorist from a burning vehicle shortly before it was consumed by flames on July 26.
This video, released by the police department, shows two men at the door of the vehicle as the smoke thickens around them. A short time later, they carry the driver to safety.
Police said they were called to a crash near the Shell gas station at Sunset and Salem roads around 3 pm. The driver was unconscious inside the car, police said.
“As the first officer arrived, she found that two good Samaritans had already jumped into action to assist the driver,” they added.
The two quick-thinking civilians, named Larry Scott and Dominique Golden, were praised by police for removing the driver from the car “just before it caught on fire.”
“BTPD salutes and thanks these men for their heroism,” police said. Credit: Burlington Township Police Department via Storyful
