Deputies pull driver from burning taxi just in time.

Sheriff's deputies in Orange County, California pulled a man from his burning vehicle moments before it exploded into flames and it was caught on dashcam video.

Take a look at this, you can just see through the smoke as deputies approached a burning taxicab with guns drawn.

They said later they weren't sure if the driver was trying to escape.

However, they made a split-second decision to pull him out and drag him across the street, just before the vehicle went up in flames.

Authorities said the 49-year-old driver had suffered a medical emergency, causing him to crash.

Deputies say the victim, who is recovering, would not have made it if they had arrived a few seconds later.
