Schechterle survived being hit in his police car by another car going 100 mph. His car burst into flames and he endured 700 degree temperatures. He suffered severe burns to over 40% of his body which drastically altered his appearance. He discusses how he has succeeded through 52 surgeries, his experience listening to interviews on the night of the accident, and the response of his wife and three children. Since the accident in 2001, Schechterle travels the country as a motivational speaker and has written two books about his experiences, Burning Shield and Beyond the Flames.
