Officer's Body Camera Captures Dramatic Canal Rescue
A Utah Highway Patrol trooper captured amazing footage on his body camera of first responders rescuing a man who was pinned in the wreckage of his car after he crashed it into a canal in Fielding, Utah.
Sgt. Joshua Carr was wearing the body cam when emergency crews rescued 45-year-old Paul Sleight, whose legs were pinned between the driver’s seat and the dashboard of his vehicle Friday afternoon.
Carr says a Good Samaritan called 911 after spotting debris on the side of the road. Fire crews and EMS crews arrived and helped get Sleight safely out of the vehicle, as it was sinking in the water.
Sleight suffered several compound fractures to both of his legs. He was airlifted to a hospital where he underwent several surgeries and is now in stable condition.
