Hero of the Holiday Week: New Jersey Police Officer Scott Krissinger Rescues Unconscious Driver 61 Year Old Gerald Ferrill from Burning Vehicle
Hero New Jersey police officer Scott Krissinger saves 61 year old unconscious man from his burning truck. In the video below taken from officer Krissinger’s dashboard camera shows the police officer saving 61 year old Gerald Ferrill from his burning truck on November 25, 2013 in West Cape May, NJ. Officer Krissinger said following the rescue, “I don’t think about myself as a hero.” That’s of Officer Krissinger, heroes never usually do, but we certainly think you are!
A southern New Jersey police officer braved heat and blinding smoke to pull an unconscious driver from a pickup truck that had burst into flames.
Cape May Officer Scott Krissinger’s dashboard camera showed him sprinting toward the pickup Monday night and pulling out the driver as the vehicle was engulfed in flames and smoke. It also showed him going back a second time to make sure there are no passengers.
Police Capt. Rob Sheehan said the department is very proud of Krissinger, who has been on the force for six years.
“He’s a hero in every sense of the word,” he told WMGM-TV.
