Man rescued from burning car
Yorba Linda, Calif. - Through the smoke, deputies approach a burning taxicab with guns drawn.
They said later they weren't sure if the driver of the vehicle was trying to escape.
However, they made a split-second decision to pull him out and drag him across the street---seconds before the vehicle went up in flames.
Authorities said the 49-year-old driver had suffered a medical emergency, causing him to crash.
Deputies said the victim, who is recovering, would not have made it if they had arrived a few seconds later.
