WOODSTOCK, Ill. (CBS) — The McHenry County Sheriff’s office says a good Samaritan and an off-duty officer came to the rescue of a woman whose car was on fire this morning.
It was just before 7 in the morning and the rain was pouring down, when 39-year-old Randy Ho heard the car crash outside his home in Woodstock, and saw that a woman was hurt.
He ran out and saw that an off-duty McHenry County Conservation District officer had stopped to help.
“He was trying to get her out of the car and couldn’t get the doors open,” he said. “And as I walked up I noticed the car was on fire. And I just basically went up and ripped the door open.”
