A man is lucky to be alive thanks to the heroic actions of some Dunwoody Police officers.

It happened on Interstate 285 at the Ashford Dunwoody Road exit. A driver ran off the road, struck a guardrail, and flipped his car. That sparked a fire.

Body camera video released by the Dunwoody Police Department shows the officers grabbing a fire extinguisher and knocking the flames down enough so the officers could pull the driver out of the driver’s side door.

The driver was rushed to the hospital, but police said he is expected to recover.
