61-year-old Gerald Ferrill of Mays Landing, NJ, has a lot to be thankful for today. First, to be alive, and second, for the man who saved his life!

Cape May Police Officer Scott Krissinger didn’t skip a bit when he went into a burning truck and saved Ferrill’s life. The incredible rescue was captured on the dashboard cam of Krissinger's patrol vehicle. Here's the footage... 

Witnesses say Ferrill was driving with a flat tire and strange sounds were coming from the engine area prior to the fire.

Officer Krissinger says "I think there are heroes every day… I just happened to be caught on camera doing it," but we all agree, he IS a hero!
