NEW YORK (NBC) —The New York City Police Department is recognizing one of its own after bodycam footage showed the officer saving a man from a burning car.

In the video posted to social media Wednesday, you can see the officer approach the crash scene back on Nov.23 in the Bronx. The officer initially uses a fire extinguisher to try to put out the flames, then — he reaches inside the car and drags the dazed driver out of his seat and away from the flames.

The driver sustained only minor injuries.
