— -- A man has an Ohio police officer to thank for saving his life after the officer dragged him out of a burning car.

Dashcam video from the Uniontown officer's car shows a crowd gathered around the burning vehicle in the parking lot of Hartville Marketplace in Hartville, Ohio, last week.

The fire raged on despite attempts to extinguish it. Sgt. Mike Batchik then dragged the unconscious man to safety, the department told ABC News. No one else was inside the vehicle.

Police said the man shook hands with Batchik and another officer after the incident.
