Officer rushes into burning wreck to save infant
"I looked in and saw a little baby girl in a car seat just hanging there," Ribec told WGLA. "She wasn't crying. She wasn't yelling. She wasn't talking. She had a blank face which worried me even worse. Officer Yoder handed me a knife and I was able to cut the baby loose."
After freeing the child Ribec went back and pulled Fisher from the burning wreck. Both Fisher and the little girl were unhurt. Police told WGLA that Fisher was arrested for driving under the influence. Police are waiting for blood-test results before charging him. Although Ribec says he's he doesn't feel like a hero, the Lower Swatara Township plans to reward Ribec's bravery. Ribec is no stranger to the spotlight. Earlier this year the officer was recognized by Dauphin County for having a hand in 75 DUI arrests in 2015.
