Deputy was seriously injured in the crash and unable to get out of the vehicle that had burst into flames. (patrol car completely destroyed).

My 21 YO Son was one of the two men that pulled the deputy form the burning vehicle.

He and his buddy ( the other guy) were on their way to visit with friends in north Florida.

I am very proud of my son.

I bet the deputy is happy that your son and his friend came along. That car is toast.

I have always been proud of him, he is a good kid, never been in trouble and we never had any real problems with him.

Physically he is my clone ( with the exception of the blonde hair he got from his mom) and his mental make up is much like mine at his age.

He is considering a career iin LE. I told him if he wants to go that route I can get him a job no problem.

A Dragoon clone in his early Twenties. That should strike fear in the hearts of every thug on the street. I already like it. :supergrin:

Awesome, just plain awesome!

I've personally tried once to rescue a child from a burning car. Got burned myself. My hair was on fire and my jacket melted but didn't succeed.

I know what it takes. He obviously has the right stuff.

Your son would be an asset to any police department.

waidaminute, if youre so old.....then your son must have used his walker to get to the deputy.....LOL

actually glad the deputy is doing well for once and glad your son was man enough to do the right thing....

been to many a crash scenes that had plenty of on lookers yelling for somebody (else) to do something....

Good to see. Your son did a great thing and showed a lot of guts (bravery) in a world where most people his age (heck, most people any age) would be too frightened to use common sense and help out.

He's restoring my faith in younger 20 something year old people.

Have a beer on me (after work, of course).:cool:

Just read the complete article and would like to add prayers for the deputy's recovery.

A broken femur is no joke and could be a career ender. I hope he recovers fully.

Good job by your son, must of learned a lot from you.

I must admit I discouraged my sons from following the LEO path.

My son said at the scene they thought the Deputies hip was broken, he was unable to move at all.

Congrats Dragoon! I am only two years older than your son. I am glad he had the will and courage to help somebody in need. He would make a fine asset to any PD in this world if he decides to follow that career path. Please let him know he has a free beer waiting for him if he ever makes it to my little part of Pennsylvania.

I guess I could extend the same offer to you too since you only raised him and all. :supergrin:

Well done.

Wait, he's only 21? Does that mean you had him when you were 4,372 years old?:supergrin:

+1. I know you said he's a good kid, but it's good to see it re-affirmed when he steps up and does the right thing.

I do know the feeling of being proud of kids. My son did 4 years in the Marine Corps (Infantry) and has been a cop in a nearby Palm Beach County city (120 officers) for over the past 5 years.

My other daughter has been in the medical field for almost 2 years now. They both make their own money and pay their own bills.
I have a 14 year old daughter and a 13 year old son, who I am hoping both take the same path. It seems that the even younger kids seem very ungrateful for all the things we provide them with. Who's fault is that? Mine and my wife's fault of course.

I like to blame this newly found internet society at the drop of a hat, but the bottom line is I always had some sort of control over it.

My older son and older daughter have never done such a heroic act as your 21 year old son has done (being at the right place and right time has a big part in it). But I trust that they would have acted the same and showed the same amount of character, if the situation was the same.

In my retirement years (past 6) I have worked as a University cop and I see the attitudes these younger kids have. To be fair, perhaps half, or more than half may have the good moral values that I like to see....but it's these kids that have all these. "entitlement expectations" that seem to make an impact on me.

Your son (and his friend), by fate had a chance to show true bravery and character and I think they passed that test with flying colors. I sure hope there are many more who'll do the same, should the situation arise. I really want to believe in this.

Now I feel OLD.Do I have to teach you everything!?!?!

Grandparent Rule: You are only as old as your youngest [potty trained] grandchild.

I felt adding "potty trained" necessary so you'd not blame me for your regressing back to diapers!!!:tongueout:

That has worked for me for almost two decades now!

Oh, and congratulations, you'll do fine!
