Gloucester County, VA. – A Virginia deputy who was previously recognized for saving two people from a burning home in 2020, continued to show off his life saving skills when he lifted a vehicle off a woman who was trapped underneath.
The May 7th incident was caught on the deputy’s body camera.
Gloucester Sheriff Deputy Deputy J. Holt had responded to an overturned vehicle with an entrapment. When he arrived, Holt noticed that the female driver had her head pinned by the sunroof.
In a statement, the agency said that seeing the trauma the woman’s child was experiencing pushed Holt into a superhero.
“Through sheer will and determination due to fearing the female may succumb to her circumstance in front of her panic-stricken child, Deputy J. Holt took quick action and was able to physically lift the vehicle up enough for the driver to maneuver her head out to safety,” the sheriff’s office said.
