A Good Samaritan and a Mechanic Falls police officer rescued a man from a burning car during the early hours of March 17.
Dashcam footage shows Officer Chasse and “a citizen who was on his way into work” pulling the driver, named by local media as Aryn Johnson, to safety.
“I was wide awake when I was driving,” Johnson told WGME CBS 13 while in hospital. “I was listening to my music, my hip hop, just chilling along, and all of a sudden I wake up here.”
“If not for Officer Chasse’s quick and heroic actions the occupant’s outcome may not have been the same,” Mechanic Falls Police Department wrote on Facebook. Credit: Mechanic Falls Police Department via Storyful
