VIDEO: New York State Trooper Saves Driver From Gas Station Fire

Posted: Updated:
HARRISON, NY-John Vescio, a senior state police investigator in NYC, saved a man’s life at a Mobil station on the Hutchinson River Parkway in White Plains, New York, on June 3rd.

State Police say Vescio was fueling his car when a driver of a Toyota Camry, who was in diabetic shock, swerved and crashed into the gas station when he attempted to pull-in.

The crash knocked a pump onto Vescio and then burst into flames, engulfing his unmarked vehicle.

Injured himself, he immediately went over to the 69-year-old driver of the Toyota, and pulled him out of the vehicle to safety.

Sr. Inv. Vescio directed others away from the fire and asked a bystander to help in moving the driver further away from the scene. He then went into the trunk of his burning car and retrieved his First Aid Kit.

Vescio's quick-thinking saved the unresponsive driver's life. Four others were hurt in the crash.

The man who went into diabetic shock is still in the hospital, but is in stable condition.
