“I put on my four ways because I honestly thought the truck was going to come over and slam into me, came to a stop, looked, seen that she was still in the driver’s seat, seeing the fire and stuff, the sparks, the tires were on fire,” he told WBAY-TV.

As flames began to spread quickly, he realized a female driver was trapped and unable to exit.

D’Addezio knew there wasn’t time to wait for emergency personnel, so he put himself in harm’s way, grabbed a fire extinguisher, and pulled the woman out of the perilous situation before her truck was totally engulfed in flames.

In the end, D’Addezio did just that, rescuing the grateful woman from what could have been a deadly situation. His boldness and willingness to serve is notable.
