Off Duty Cop Rescues Man From Gas Station Fire

Newly released surveillance video shows the moment an off-duty New York state police officer rushed back into a fire to save a man who had crashed into a gas pump.

New York State Police Senior Investigator John Vescio was pumping gas at a Mobil gas station near White Plains, N.Y., last week when a speeding car came crashing into the pump station.

“I actually went to look up and see what was going on and next thing I knew the pump was coming down on me,” Vescio said. “The impact was very sudden and very quick.”

Vescio escaped just as the gas pump began to burst into flames. When he looked back at the scene, he saw the elderly driver of the crashed car stuck inside. Vescio rushed back to the flames.

“He was not responsive, I found, when I got to the car,” Vescio said. “He was pretty much helpless.”

The driver of the vehicle, who was not identified, had gone into diabetic shock, according to police.

Vescio dragged the man out of the car by his shirt and then returned to the car once again to retrieve a first aid kit.

Both Vescio and the driver of the crashed car escaped without injury.

God created cops because even firemen need heroes.

Yikes.

I'm all in if it's just a car fire but a gas pump and what is probably a 8000 gal plus tank? Nope...not this guy.

The good stories never seem to get the draw....it's quite obvious.

Any chance those you speak of were erroneously accused of being cop haters? Maybe they have real objections to the actions of some in uniform, or department policies/tactics and it is just easier to label them as cop haters than to explain why you believe it is justified to infringe upon their rights.
