YORBA LINDA, Calif. - Sheriff's deputies in Orange County, California pulled a man from his burning vehicle moments before it exploded into flames. The entire incident was captured on dash cam video.
In the video, you can just see through the smoke as deputies approached a burning car with guns drawn.
They said later they weren't sure if the driver was trying to escape.

Authorities said the 49-year-old driver had suffered a medical emergency, causing him to crash.
Deputies said the victim, who is recovering, would not have made it if they had arrived a few seconds later.
