NSW: Courageous officer saves baby from burning car

A policeman reached into a burning car to rescue a trapped baby boy after a horrific
smash in Sydney today involving a dump truck and up to 10 other vehicles.

The one-year-old boy suffered burns to 90 per cent of his body and was airlifted in
a critical condition to Westmead Hospital.

Three cars caught fire after the collision on Sydney's northern beaches, injuring the
child and three other people.

Emergency crews were on the scene just after 8:30am (AEST) at the intersection of Pittwater
Road and Warringah Road at Dee Why.

Fire officer ROD FITZGERALD saw the policeman pull the child from the blazing car and
told Radio 2UE it was the most courageous act he had ever seen.

The baby boy's mother, 33, and his three-year-old brother were taken to Royal North
Shore Hospital, both with burns.

An ambulance spokeswoman says the three-year-old boy had minor burns to his scalp and
his mother burns to her back and arms.

Another person was taken to Manly Hospital with minor facial injuries.

Warringah Road remains blocked with traffic diversions are in place.
