Seattle police captain tries to recruit hero who saved him and his wife
SEATTLE — What do you do when you are a Seattle police captain and you learn that the young man who probably saved you and your wife’s life is a Navy veteran and enrolled in commercial dive school? You try to recruit him to join the police department. On June 12, David Emerick and his wife, Sally, were driving on I-90 to Eastern Washington when their 2011 Chevy pickup truck caught fire. They didn’t realize it at first, as the flames started underneath.
