Photojournalists are used to seeing some pretty intense scenes in the course of their work. It’s not often that they choose to become part of them, though. Cameraman and owner of RMG News, Austin Raishbrook made that choice when he put down his camera to rescue a trapped and unconscious driver from a burning vehicle.
CBS reports that Raishbrook was filming n SUV that had stalled on the outside lane of a northbound California freeway. The SUV’s lights had failed after two vehicles made glancing blows as they went past, but then a third slammed into it. This caused it spin and burst into flames. Raishbrook immediately “switched over from cameraman to rescuer”.
