Heroic Teen Saves Cop From Burning Car

When Joe Chambers saw sparks flying from the bottom of the police car that crashed Saturday near his sister’s home in Grays Ferry, the 17-year-old volunteer firefighter knew the cop trapped inside only had seconds to escape.

So the teen from Ridley Park – now being hailed a hero along with another man, Dante Johnson, 24, for saving the officer’s life – sprung into action: He sprinted down the block toward the burning squad car, at 28th and Tasker streets.
