Cameras capture fiery rescue

Body camera and dashboard camera footage shows Florida police drag crash victim from burning car as it explodes.

(WESH/NBC News) Newly released body camera video shows the heroic efforts by Florida police officers who rescued a man after a fiery crash.

The accident occurred in February when a driver crashed into concrete barriers along a road in Titusville.

The 44-year-old New Jersey man had gotten off U.S. 1 one by taking a fork in the road, thinking he was still on the highway. Instead, he rammed into the barriers at the end of a side road.
