    FORT WORTH -- Police officials are lauding two patrol officers who rescued a man from a flaming sports utility vehicle last week on Interstate 35W in south Forth Worth.
    Images of the rescue were released Tuesday. The footage was captured by a dash camera video from a patrol car, said Lt. Paul Henderson, police spokesman.
    The rollover accident was reported 1:15 a.m. Feb. 11 in the 9300 block of I-35W, between its intersections with Everman Parkway and West Risinger Road.
    A 1994 GMC Yukon lost control, hit a concrete barrier and rolled, according to police reports. Smoke was pouring from the SUV as Officers Adam Coleman and Victor Tapia arrived, Henderson said.
    "As officers approached, they realized that the driver was still inside the vehicle behind the wheel," said Henderson. "The Yukon burst into flames as (the officers) risked their lives by entering the burning vehicle and pulling the man to safety."
    The driver, identified as Kane Gonzalez of Cleburne, was taken by ambulance to John Peter Smith Hospital, Henderson said. His medical condition was unavailable a week later. He could not be reached for comment.
    Henderson said the video is dramatic.
    "After the rescue you can see the officers crouching to the ground, apparently trying to recover from the heat and the smoke," Henderson said.
    He said he did not release the video earlier because the accident initially sounded like a routine single-vehicle wreck, and he did not see the video until Friday.
    "Police officers nationwide risk their lives daily,'' he said. "and this is a shining example of bravery in the face of imminent danger shown by these two outstanding officers of the Fort Worth Police Department."

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion

    Great job done,
    THe only thing i seen wrong with it, was near the end, they pick the guy up, and his neck swings all over the Place. Noone thought above Holding c-spine until the squad arrived. Hope the dude was ok.
    Kudos to the officers for risking their lives.
    YEAH, IM THE BERRIES, AND CHERRIES IN YOUR REAR VIEW MIRROR.

    Handle every stressful situation like a dog.
    Eat it, Play with it, or piss on it, and walk away!

    As smart as man is, we haven't been able to invent a machine that can smell drugs or tell us where a person has walked, Dogs are sophisticated investigative tools!
