Crazy Video 'That's My Dad!': Teen Stops to Help Injured Cop, Realizes It's Her Father
A Florida police officer was injured Monday afternoon in a hit-and-run incident, and his own daughter happened upon the scene.
Gulf Breeze police officer Sgt. Kerstan Tatro's dashboard camera shows him standing by the driver's side window of DUI suspect Amy Lee Giorgio's Lexus CV.
Tatro reportedly reaches into the window to grab car keys out of the ignition when he sees Giorgio try and put it into gear.
Giorgio accelerates with the officer still partway in the window, dragging him a short distance and running him over when he falls from the vehicle.
Several motorists pull over to help the injured officer, and one them is Tatro's own daughter, who just happened to be driving by.
"Dad, are you OK?" she can be heard crying. "That's my dad!"
Watch the intense video below.
The Gulf Breeze police officer who was seriously injured Monday afternoon after being run over by a motorist during a traffic stop is now in stable condition at Sacred Heart Hospital.
Sgt. Kerstan Tatro suffered a compound fracture in his right arm during the incident, said Deputy Chief Rick Hawthorne with the Gulf Breeze Police Department.
"He's going to be in the hospital for several days due to the break in the arm just making sure no infection or anything occurs," Hawthorne said. "But he's moving around and is doing good."
