Dramatic car fire rescue caught on camera
The thrill of the day comes to us from a real life “Captain America”. An off-duty Army captain is being hailed a hero for pulling a trapped couple to safety after coming across a fiery car wreckage. William Thompson, 67, was driving his wife Kathleen, 63, through Chatham County, North Carolina on Sunday afternoon when another driver, Mark Ricketts, 59, crossed into their lane, this caused a head-on collision. Both vehicles went up in flames with a small explosion happening after impact.
Army Captain Steve Voglezon, who was appropriately wearing a ‘Captain America’ T-shirt, happened to be passing the scene on his way to the mall with his girlfriend and ran to help. He didn’t hesitate in pulling the victims to safety. All of the people injured made it safely to the UNC Hospital with serious, but non-life threatening injuries.
