Looks like we have another hero in the county.
The car’s engine compartment caught fire, and that’s when the driver told the officer that his baby girl was inside the car.
Oyler rushed to the car to find the child.
“I couldn’t get the driver’s side door opened so I went around to the passenger side door and pried it open, reached in and pulled the baby out,” he said.
Though heavy smoke was billowing from the engine into the cabin, Oyler said he had no problems getting the girl out of her car seat.
The 8-month-old girl was okay, though she was checked at a hospital as a precaution. She was released to her mother.
Kudos to officer Oyler, who risked his life to save an innocent child. Let’s hope the sheer idiot who needlessly put this child in danger gets the book thrown at him.
