SC officer survived being shot 4 times. His camera-glasses recorded it.

Malcolm Orr fired eight times at a South Carolina police officer last year

The officer's camera glasses, which he bought off Amazon, captured the moment he was hit and his desperate plea to an emergency dispatcher, asking them to tell his family that he loved them, as he lay bloody waiting for help.

Malcolm Antwan Orr, 29, fired eight bullets at Quincy Smith, striking the official four times on New Year's Day last year in Estill, South Carolina.

Video recorded from a SC police officer's glasses camera and released to the public on Thursday shows the moment the officer was shot four times.

Smith tells him multiple times to stop and to take his hand out of his pocket and he threatens to shoot him with a Taser if he does not comply. The footage becomes shaky, indicating Smith is running back to his squad vehicle.

After what seems like an eternity and much radio traffic with the dispatcher, during which a bystander comforts the officer, other cops and EMTs arrive at the scene.

The South Carolina officer survived, and months later, while giving evidence against Orr - the man who tried to kill him - Mr Smith described the camera glasses as the best $30 (£23) he had ever spent. "My arms are broken".

Passer-by J Tompkins is filmed stopping to help Smith, who is heard saying: "I can barely breathe, tell them to hurry up". Smith then threatened Orr with a taser if Orr did not remove his hand from his jacket pocket.

According to WJCL, Smith is still recovering both physically and emotionally. "I'm not playing with you!" "I've called 911, I've called 911, is there anything I can do for you? I'm still trying to heal up injuries to my arm", Smith said. "I am hit in my neck some place". It will take Smith to Memorial Health Medical Center in Savannah, Ga. "I take it day by day", said the officer.

A woman can be heard in the background screaming: "Quincy, you OK baby, Oh God Jesus".

The footage helped convict Orr, who was found guilty of attempted murder and possessing a weapon in a violent crime on Wednesday and sentenced to 35 years in prison.
