Off-Duty IBPO Member Saves Driver from Burning SUV

Police officers are often called on to risk their safety on the job, but one officer from Cranston, Rhode Island risked his on his way into work one night recently to save the driver in a burning SUV.

According to media reports, Officer Brenton Medeiros was on his way into work late on the evening of March 24 when he came across an SUV that had just been in an accident near I-195 in East Providence. The SUV had crashed on a dead-end street and was on fire.

Officer Medeiros climbed down an embankment and jumped a fence to reach the SUV before pulling the elderly driver to safety.
