Congratulations to Trooper Anthony Lee who is the recipient of the Florida Highway Patrol Trooper of the Month award for January 2003, based on his life-saving actions involving the rescue of a Fire Rescue driver caught in a burning vehicle.

On January 30, 2003, while on routine patrol on I-95, Trooper Lee observed that a Broward County Fire Rescue vehicle had been involved in a traffic crash. After observing smoke coming from the vehicle, and noting that the driver appeared to be lying down across the front seat, he attempted to gain entry to the vehicle. Using a metal bar, he broke out the passenger window, and with the help of a civilian, entered the vehicle to alert the driver. After assessing that the driver’s leg was pinned beneath the seat, Trooper Lee dislodged his leg and pulled him from the vehicle to safety.

Trooper Lee’s quick removal of the injured driver is indicative of his courage and ability to make good decisions in dangerous situations. He acted in the highest tradition of the Florida Highway Patrol, and is hereby commended for his actions.
