New York’s finest are being hailed as heroes once again. This time for saving a man pinned underneath 3800 pounds of metal, and of course, the cameras were rolling when they did it.

Police were responding to a call about a fight outside of a restaurant and, when they arrived, a 19-year-old man bolted from the scene. The man got hit by a taxi and was pinned beneath it. 
It took a dozen officers to lift the car to free the trapped man. He was transported to the hospital in critical condition. The cab driver did not face any charges.
