MUSKOGEE, Okla. – A body camera captures video of a man being rescued by an Oklahoma police officer.

Smoke was pouring from the Muskogee home when an officer noticed a burned man in the front yard.

The officer rushes over to the man and pulls him out of the way.

Then an officer rushes next door to save a woman who was dangerously close to the flames.

According to KJRH, Muskogee police Cpl. Mike Mahan says they’ve had these body cameras for a couple of months.

“It makes it much more transparent and the new thing about the video is that it really does show it records everything that took place. It shows the conversations, what the scene looked like …  it’s a very good tool for us to have,” he told KJRH.

Mahan says the department got the cameras before the nation-wide demand, in light of recent police brutality accusations in other states.
