Watch: Police pull man from burning car in New Jersey

'Your car's on fire, bro!'

Two New Jersey police troopers pulled an unconscious man from his burning car moments before it was engulfed in flames.

ABC News reported that the driver was believed to have fallen asleep on the wheel as he was headed home from work, and suddenly veered off the road. 

As flames spread across the front of the car, the two troopers - Christopher Warwick and Thomas O'Connor - repeatedly tried to alert the driver to the danger before trying to remove him from the vehicle.

The troopers repeatedly tried to open the driver-side door, which was blocked by the guardrail, before pulling him out through the window.

"When we started tugging, we gave him some pretty hard tugs, he wasn't moving at all right away," O'Connor told ABC. "You are cognizant the fire is there, but I don't think in that moment you truly realize how intense and how close it actually is."

Police said that once out of the car, the driver regained consciousness and did not sustain any injuries in the crash.
