WATCH: Officers rescue group of men after cars engulfed with flames

Posted: Updated:
CAMDEN COUNTY -

A dramatic rescue was caught on a body camera as four Camden County police officers saved a group of men after their cars crashed and caught on fire.

The police officers are being called heroes.

Following the crash, flames swallowed both of the cars.

The officers risked their lives to pull out the men.

"It could have been four other officers, or five, or could've been two other officers and they would've did the same exact thing," says Officer Vaughn Edwards. "We all got together at the end of this shift and just wanted to make sure that the victims were OK. And then we got a text from our sergeant who said that they were fine."

All of the men suffered non-life-threatening injuries, but are recovering.
