CNN’s Anderson Cooper speaks to Army Captain Steve Voglezon who rescued people from a fiery car crash, while wearing a Captain America t-shirt.
Police and firefighters responded Sunday to a highway in Chatham County, North Carolina where a head-on crash after one of the drivers crossed the center line and hit a car with two passengers.
Neighbors joined Fort Bragg Army Captain Steve Voglezon, who grabbed a fire extinguisher, and then dragged William Thompson out of a burning car just as a Parkwood Volunteer Fire Department ladder truck from Durham, North Carolina arrived.
Voglezon went to the overturned silver overturned SUV and helped a man out of the SUV. After that rescue, the SUV became fully involved in fire after a pop or small explosion.
The video showing Voglezon removing a victim is the action that occurred when Voglezon was rescuing William Thompson out of the sedan.
