LAPD's Don Thompson Rescues Trapped Driver in Burning Car on 405 Freeway

Others also ran to help as well, but Officer Thompson, who was off-duty, was first to try and get the man out. I read this story on Christmas Day. Thompson cut the man's seat belt with a utility knife he carries, and he himself became overcome by flames and smoke as he was pulling the man to safety. That is heroism.

At LAT, "Off-duty officer likely saved life of motorist on 405, official says."
