Sergeant Rodriguez directed his daughter to grab their fire extinguisher, then, along with another good samaritan, Sgt. Rodriguez broke the rear window to extricate the driver.
As the flames and smoke intensified, the men's attempts to free the driver were unsuccessful. Just before the entire vehicle burst into flames, the two were able to release the driver’s seatbelt and pull them to safety. Were it not for the immediate actions of Sgt. Rodriguez, the driver would likely have perished in the fire.
