Mesquite Cops Hauled an Unconscious Man Out of a Burning SUV (Video)

A dramatic scene unfolded on the I-30 service road in Mesquite early Sunday morning as a Mesquite Police dash cam captured two officers hauling an apparently unconscious man from a burning SUV.

As the police car approaches the wrecked vehicle, you can hear a bystander saying that the man inside is "still breathing" as the officers run toward the fire. The cops pull the man out of the car, commanding that he "stay with them."

We've contacted Mesquite police for an update on the man's condition. We'll update this post as soon as we hear something.

Update: 4:00 p.m. : According to multiple media reports, the man being pulled from the SUV is Hector Valles, 25, of Mesquite. Valles' car was the only one involved in the wreck. He was taken to Baylor Hospital, where he remains in ICU. The officers have been identified as Ryan Nielson and Autumn Soto by WFAA .
