VILLA RICA, Ga. - When things go wrong police officers are trained to run toward the danger that sends most people running for help. Three Villa Rica officers sent them inside an out of control fire to save a life.
"It came out as just a car fire," recalled Officer Spencer Crawford.
But when he arrived, along with Corporal Meredith Ivey and Officer Micahiah Swain , they discovered the burning car had someone trapped inside.
"I got in the car the flames are up into the windshield," Crawford said.
That didn't stop the trio of officers from putting themselves in danger. The driver was stuck, jammed inside after a crash into a tree on Industrial Blvd. He wasn't responsive as the flames danced around them.
The officers decided to pull.
