Hartville, OH — Uniontown police Sgt., Michael Batchik responded to a 9-1-1 call at Hartville Marketplace last week of a person trapped in a vehicle which was on fire.
Apparently the victim crashed into the vehicle in front of his after apparently passing out with his foot on the accelerator.
When Batchik pulled up to the scene he quickly and selflessly throws himself into harms way to rescue the unconscious man inside the dangerously smokey vehicle; which could have exploded at any moment.
Moments after Batchik disappears into the smoke he’s seen pulling the unconscious man away from the SUV.
For his courage and selflessness, Sgt. Batchik deserves credit and the Free Thought Project would like to extend that to him.
