Dog Gets Stuck in a Burning Car

A dog gets stuck in the back of a car almost like quicksand.


A dog that was stuck in a burning car was saved by a Sheriff’s deputy in Denver Colorado. 


Michael Gregork’s body camera shows the deputy arriving at the crime scene where a car was burning.


The owner frantically yells that his dog Hank is somewhere inside the locked vehicle,” says the owner of the dog.


Micheal used a retractable baton to smash the window of the owner’s car open to get the dog out of the car.


“I just went in there and grabbed on. And his body had already kind of started to tense up, so I knew he was really in a bad way. … Nothing else really mattered at that point other than getting Hank out of the car,” says Michael.


All of the neighbors in the neighborhood that the car caught on fire in have thanked the police officer. The dog was frightened but when it returned home it was ready to play again.


“I’m a dog parent. My only child is my dog, so I would have done the same thing, whether it be baby, human, dog, cat. A life is a life, and you kind of treat it as such in a situation like that,” Gregorek said.
