San Manuel Department of Public Safety Officer Joseph Morris unexpectedly assisted an unconscious passenger out of a totaled, burning vehicle on Sunday, May 10.

Morris was traveling southbound on Tippecanoe Avenue when he observed what appeared to be a burning vehicle in the middle of the northbound lane, just north of Harry Sheppard Boulevard, when the San Manuel security officer decided to provide aid.

“The actions of PSO Morris demonstrate an unwavering commitment to the protection and safety of others,” said San Manuel Chief Physical Security Officer Steven Gomez. “This is a priority that all the 400-plus members of our department share with the tribe that we serve.”
