WATCH: OK deputy saves man from burning vehicle

WASHINGTON COUNTY, OK (KFOR) – An Oklahoma deputy is being credited with saving the life of an injured driver on March 26.

Deputy Carey Duniphin was the first deputy to arrive on the scene and ran to the burning car where the driver was reported as being trapped.

Deputy Duniphin found the man on his hands and knees outside of the vehicle. The driver, Alex Rangel, had blood coming from his mouth and likely suffered a broken jaw. His leg was also bent in half and he was unable to walk away from the crash site and get to safety on his own.

According to KFOR, Duniphin dragged Rangel about 10 yards to safety until other help could arrive.
