The St. Charles Parish Sheriff’s supervisor was saved Saturday around 6:45 p.m. in St. John the Baptist Parish, Louisana, after his vehicle flipped over and erupted into a blaze.
The cause of the potentially deadly wreck isn’t known, though some of the details on the rescue are now coming to light.
As it turns out, a couple saw the flames and stopped to help out, with other good Samaritans reportedly joining them to successfully get the officer out of the vehicle.
“I’m not no hero,” one of the good Samaritans told WWL-TV. “I just did what I thought was right … I just assumed somebody was in that car.”
The cop involved sustained only minor injuries and is now recovering. Louisana State Police are investigating what unfolded.
“I am thankful our officer received help quickly from the St. John Parish Sheriff’s Office and will be alright,” Sheriff Greg Champagne said of the incident.
Thank the Lord for a positive conclusion to a harrowing situation. Pray for the officer’s continued recovery.
