Black Man ‘Rips Open’ Car Door To Save White Officer From Burning Vehicle

As the saying goes, not all heroes wear capes – and Daylan McLee, 31, from Pennsylvania, is one of them heroes.

Daylan has not had an easy life. He’s suffered police harassment for years and even spent a year in jail before being acquitted.

Daylan is also is currently fighting a charge of resisting arrest against the same department, claiming he was kicked in the mouth during his arrest.

But Daylan knows his right from wrong, and despite the past, and that’s why just a few days ago he risked his life to pull a white officer from his burning patrol vehicle, saving his life.

McLee was having a barbecue when he heard a loud bang outside. He ran out and saw a patrol car on flames with the officer trapped inside.

Immediately McLee ran over and tore open the door, saving the officer’s life.

Speaking about the incident, McLee said:

We need to work on our humanity… that’s the main problem of this world. 

We’re stuck on how to get up or to get even, and that is not how I was raised to be. You learn, you live, you move on and I was always taught to forgive big. 

You can’t base every day of your life off of one interaction you have with one individual.

A true hero.
