It was a moment that would change both of their lives forever. Civilian Joseph Chambers spotted Officer Mark Kimsey trapped in a police car that was engulfed in flames just meters away from where he was standing. And Chambers knew that he had to do something.

The date was November 8, 2014, and the then-17-year-old Chambers was waiting for his brother to return with takeout from a store in Grays Ferry in Philadelphia. As he waited at his half-sister’s home, the teenager heard a strange loud noise, but he had no idea what had caused it.

“We were watching TV and heard a loud boom,” Chambers said, telling The Delaware County Daily Times about the moment. His sister initially thought that the sound might have been a gunshot and rushed to shut the windows to protect the home. But when Chambers looked outside he saw a police car.
