ATLANTA (KXAN) — Body camera video captured a dramatic rescue from a burning car in Atlanta. 

Officers arrived at the scene Sunday around 4 a.m. and found a car smashed into a utility pole with the engine on fire. Good Samaritans had already pulled two people from the car, but the passenger in the front was trapped.

One officer worked to free that person while the other used a fire extinguisher to try to keep the flames at bay. 

The three people were taken to the hospital. The officers were not hurt.
