Local Police Officer on the Today show!

As you may or may not know my DH is a Police Officer, so when I hear a heroic story it really hits home. A local Police officer in Harper Woods, Michigan was a hero on Saturday when he pushed a group of people out of the way of a car. He was investigating an accident I-94 and while talking to the parties involved, a car lost control and headed straight towards them. The officer pushed the parties out of the way and got hit by the out of control vehicle. News has quickly spread about his heroic efforts. Tomorrow morning he will be on the Today Show morning segment. It starts at 7am Michigan time.

Here is the dash cam footage from the accident. It's pretty shocking how news has spread all over the country and the internet. Make sure to tune into The Today show tomorrow morning.

He was hit in the back and hip and is doing well after a night in the hospital. Thank goodness no broken bones or internal injuries. Looks like his guardian angel was there:)

Thanks for looking!

Funny how I live in the same city and state as you & never heard about this until I read your blog. Glad he's going to be ok. How scary...I could never be a cop!
