This is the moment a volunteer firefighter rescues a woman trapped in her burning car on a motorway.
The rescue took place on the Harry S Truman Parkway in the Savannah metropolitan area in the US state of Georgia on Tuesday morning (21st December).
The fire department said the woman was trapped in her burning car on the side of the motorway when volunteer firefighter Luke Culleny arrived on the scene and sprung into action.
Unable to get out of the vehicle on her own, the firefighter helped the woman to safety in the nick of time.
The Chatham (County) Emergency Services shared footage of the incident on social media on 21st December with the message: “Watch this raw video of a rescue this morning by Chatham Fire Volunteer Luke Culleny on Truman Parkway.
“A woman was trapped in her burning car and unable to escape. Firefighter Culleny approached the flames and broke out the rear window pulling her to safety before an engine arrived.”
In the video, the black car is seen on fire on the hard shoulder as Firefighter Culleny runs towards it and puts on his helmet.
The firefighter then smashes the back window and helps the woman out of the car, which is seen burning brightly and billowing smoke across the lanes as the pair walks a safe distance away.
It is unclear if the woman needed medical attention after the incident and it was not explained what caused the fire to start.
