ETX police officer risks his life to save another

LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) -

A Longview police officer was presented with a medal of valor for his daring act of heroism. 

The award was presented to Officer Alex Chorba on Thursday evening at the Longview City Council meeting. 

In November, a truck flipped over on Danville Road in Kilgore and caught fire with the driver, Christopher Chadwick, pinned inside. 

Officer Chorba was on his way home when he was the wreck, stopped, and helped free Chadwick, even as ammunition in the truck began to go off.
