Oklahoma Police Officer Rescues Man From Burning Truck

Posted: Updated:
Moore, OK-A heroic officer jumped into a ravine to pull a man out of a burning truck early Wednesday morning in Moore, Oklahoma.

The rescue was caught on Officer Kyle Johnson's dash camera.

Officer Johnson rushed to where he saw a Chevy Silverado on fire that's when he discovered Gregory Bosley,40, stuck inside.

Officer Johnson dragged Bosley about 30 yards across a field and away from the vehicle, remarkably the driver only suffered a few minor cuts and bruises.

"I exited my vehicle and just pretty much took off for the vehicle that was on fire," said Officer Johnson. "At this time of night, it's typically people who are under the influence. But my immediate thoughts were just to preserve life. As I came up on the ravine, I noticed that it was pretty deep. The whole truck was down in it."

Officer Johnson says the man fell down into the water that's when he grabbed him and dragged him out of danger.

"It was pretty dumbfounding really that he didn't even really sustain any injuries other than minor scrapes," said Officer Johnson.

Bosley was later arrested for driving under the influence.
