An Oklahoma TV news crew came to the rescue of a man fighting a wildfire in Woodward County, in a dramatic encounter that was captured on video. In the video, KWTV workers Amy and Val Castor recorded a man who was nearly engulfed in the flames after the road grader he was driving got stuck near the massive fire.
“He can’t get out!” Amy Castor screams in the video. “Come on guy, get out!”
After a few moments, the man hops out of the grader and runs to the Castors’ truck. He thanks them for helping him as the three of them drive off.
A spokesperson for Griffin Communications, which owns KWTV, called Amy and Val Castor, a husband-and-wife weather-tracking team, “incredible Oklahomans who are constantly braving the elements to warn, protect and at times save their fellow Oklahomans.”
