2 police officers pull teens to safety from burning vehicle”

Dramatic body cam footage from a Wisconsin police officer shows the moment two officers put their lives on the line to save people from a burning auto.

A couple of cops in Wisconsin are being hailed as heroes after they bravely pulled teens from a vehicle that flipped and caught fire right before their eyes.

"Officers Schlei, Reid, and other officers from District Four risked their own lives and pulled the driver, a 16-year-old Milwaukee male, and another teenage male passenger from the vehicle", the MPD statement said.

"We knew that we were put in a position to help, and that we were able to do that, and I was thankful that it turned out the way it did, and wasn't expecting anything else regarding it", Schlei said.

"It feels like a lot longer when you're doing it though".

Another teenage boy had already escaped the vehicle and kicked out a window, but the driver and another boy were unconscious in the back seat area.

Officers say the driver of the auto was cited for reckless driving.

Officers Nicholas Schlei (l.) and Nicholas Reid (r.) recall their heroic actions.

.

For their heroism, both officers will be nominated for an MPD Merit Award.

The officers have worked together for two years and are known as the "Nick Squad," according to the Journal Sentinel.

"I think that officers just like us, and at every Milwaukee police district station, even across the country, they would do the same thing", he said.

"Because that's why we joined and that's why we're cops".
