It's nothing short of a miracle that this officer survived the blast.

Police officers are truly our own real life super heroes. There is nothing, and i mean nothing, that they won't do to help protect their communities. Any time you see a police officer, stop and say thank you. It will make you feel great, and I promise it will make their day.

A recent video serviced from Hurst, Texas showing exactly how dangerous a police officer's job can be. The officer was approaching a house, which had just been struck by a vehicle.

As he gets closer, a massive fireball shoots out of the house, coming dangerously close to the officer. Apparently, when the car struck the house, it ruptured a gas line causing the massive explosion.

Somehow, some way, the police officer only received minor injuries.

Check out the video below, clearly, it could have been much worse.
