How Close This Cop Came To Death Was All Caught On His BodyCam

Amazing new footage from a police officer’s body cam shows him working desperately to help an injured woman from a burning car near Spokane.

The police officer is being called a hero for his rescue of the trapped woman.

It was a Friday night, and a female motorist called 911 in Spokane, Washington reporting she was trapped inside of her car and that it was on fire. 911 dispatchers told her to smash the window to free herself, but she was not able to break the glass.

Spokane police officer Tim Schwering was the first on the scene, and he used his baton to knock the window out of the driver’s side door and managed to rescue the motorist with the assistance of a neighbor.

The rescued woman, Kimberly Novak, explained in an interview that she had just gone out to pick up some ice cream when she lost control and had an accident.

Novak commented: “I honestly believed that I may not make it out of there. I thought I was going to die there and so panic was definitely setting in. I mean I tried all the doors and tried to open them myself and then kicking as hard as I could. The flames were shooting up. I realized it’s happening that fast, that it was going to get me fast too.”
According to Spokane Police, a neighbor ran up to help o Schwering pull Novak from the car and through the broken-out window.

Of note, Schwering and the neighbor were transported to a local hospital and treated for smoke inhalation and minor cuts and burns they received rescuing the woman.

A Spokane Police Department spokesperson stated: “Once fire crews arrived on scene, they found the engine compartment fully involved with fire, fire venting to both wheel wells. The grille shell and bumper had melted away and were effectively burning puddles beneath vehicle. It’s unclear at this time what the cause of the car fire was.”

The amazing rescue was captured in full on officer Schwering’s body camera.
