Pennsylvania EMS Rescues Elderly Man From Burning Vehicle Seconds Before Partial Explosion

An emergency medical service crew in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, rescued an elderly man from a burning vehicle seconds before it partially exploded during the early hours of January 7, dashcam footage shared by the EMS shows.

This video was released by the Cumberland Goodwill EMS, who said a crew arrived to the scene of a vehicle crash and fire around the corner from their station in the town of Carlisle. The vehicle was fully engulfed in flames, which caused the explosion of vehicle parts, the EMS reported.

Cumberland Goodwill EMS said emergency medical technician Grace Snyder, who is also a volunteer firefighter, according to reports, identified an elderly man who was struggling to leave the vehicle and ran to help him. Just after she was able to move the man away from the fire, a larger part of the vehicle exploded, they said.

The man’s condition was unknown at the time of writing. Credit: Cumberland Goodwill EMS via Storyful
