Body cam shows good Samaritans helping police pull people out of burning car


Police in New Jersey’s Camden County are on the hunt for several motorists who played a part in a brutal car wreck that resulted in two burning vehicles- and when they find them, they will be more than happy to give their gratitude.

Several citizens assisted police in extricating injured personnel from the vehicles in the early morning hours of April 7, according to CCPD Lt. John Martinez.

“We would very much like to have them recognized for being the heroes they are,” said Martinez. “These people could have been a mailman, accountant, real estate agent, yet they stopped and put their lives on the line to help their fellow man.”

According to the Courier Post, one person was taken to the hospital, but police -who captured the incident on body camera- believe many more lives were saved by the quick thinking and lack of hesitance on the part of the brave citizens.

Five police officers from several agencies, Joseph Mair, Franklin Flash, Vaughn Edwards, Brian McCline and Vincent Russomanno- arrived on the scene to render assistance.

“It’s what we do every day,” McCline said of the rescue. “Anyone who works in this department, I think would have stepped up to the plate.”
