Body cam footage shows Washington officer rescuing woman from burning auto
Jan 24 2017
A woman who was trapped in a burning auto is hailing a Washington state officer as a hero after he bashed in her window and pulled her to safety, a rescue caught on the officer's body camera. The officer had to break the window out and, with the help of a neighbor, assist the woman through it in order to get her out of the burning vehicle. She had a late night hankering for some ice cream.
Her auto burst into flames as she called 911.
Kim Novak says she was on her way home.
Luckily, Officer Tim Schwering with the Spokane Police Department arrived.
And Officer Schwering didn't give up.
At this point, the cause of the fire is still unknown and her auto is a total loss. "I started dialing 911".
"I'm screaming and I'm yelling "Help me" and praying and asking God please don't let me die this way".
"He got to point where there was a hole about maybe this much and I thought. I was coming out", Novak said.
"It was like a baby going through the birth canal". The flames were so intense and close to him.
"I'm just grateful and blessed. But, again, I work for a great department".
In light of the last four years and negativity involving law enforcement, Schwering said it feels good to be supported by his community. "You're stuck with me forever", Novak told Officer Schwering after reuniting with him on Sunday.
Schwering managed to break a window with his baton, but couldn't unlock the door. "She's doing well and it was good to see her again", he said.
