Body cam video shows Officer Gonzalez remains cool, calm and collected throughout the ordeal -- placing a tourniquet on the man's arm to help slow the bleeding. He also locates other wounds and informs paramedics about the situation when help arrives.
"Left hand is like, gone," the officer says ... "[He's also] bleeding from the right. I couldn’t find a source and .. and he has a 1-inch wound on his left groin that he’s holding gauze over."
Ultimately, the man was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment.
No word on his current condition but it's clear he was lucky Officer Gonzalez was on duty that night.
The LAPD adds, "'To protect and serve,' more than a motto, it's who we are."
