When Colorado Deputy Michael Gregorek was dispatched to a vehicular fire, he wasn’t sure what to expect.
Dozens of thoughts were running through his head.
He was unsure what kind of situation was waiting for him.
e was asking questions to himself such as, was it a crime?
Would it spread to a house?
Are there people in it?
When he arrived at the scene, he saw a man throwing something at the vehicle.
He was concerned that this was another similar incident.
It turned out that the man was the owner of the vehicle and was shouting that his dog was in the car.
It became immediately apparent that it was not a crime, but there was a life to save.
The incident was captured through the deputy’s body and dashboard cameras.
The deputy used his ASP, or his retractable baton, to break the car’s back window.
The owner calls the dog by shouting his name Hank, and Hank sticks his head out of the window, drooling and obviously in distress.
The owner tried pulling Hank out of the window, but the smoke got to him, and he could not pull his pet out !
After trying to pull him out, he retreated from the vehicle while coughing.
The smoke coming out from the car was getting thick and coming out from the window.
When Deputy Gregorek saw the owner step aside, he immediately approached Hank and pulled him out with all his might.
You can see in the video that the deputy was holding on to Hank tightly and not letting go of the dog.
