South Carolina police officer's camera glasses shows him being shot four times as gunman gets 35 years (GRAPHIC)

Orr had continued to talk on the phone while unloading his gun into Smith who sustained a life-threatening neck wound and two broken arms in the shocking attack

Video recorded from a camera in a SC police officer's glasses shows him getting shot four times a year ago as he tells a dispatcher, "tell my family that I love them".

Eventually Officer Smith pulls his Taser and threatens to use it on Orr if he does not comply. A paramedic removes Smith's glasses and moves them aside as Thompkins speaks with another officer as they develop a plan to pursue Orr.

The video was released yesterday and helped convict Ore of attempted murder.

"Tell my family I love them", implored a SC police officer whose video of his own near-death shooting was released this week, just one day after his convicted attacker was sentenced to prison.

Body camera footage released by the 14th Circuit Solicitor's Office in SC shows just how quickly things can take a turn for a police officer in the line of fire. "Dispatch, help me. I'm hit in my neck someplace, my arms are broken, help me please", he implores as his voice gets weaker.

The judge handed down the sentence after a two-day trial and less than 45 minutes of jury deliberation.

Smith's voice can be heard in the recording as he lay outside his patrol vehicle, He told the emergency dispatcher, "Tell my family that I love them". After Smith ordered Orr to stop, Orr fired eight shots.

Recent investments include US online lender Kabbage, which recently disclosed a $250 million investment from SoftBank . Son did not say whether an investment in the US ride hailing market would come from the so-called Vision Fund.

Stone says Smith had purchased the camera himself.

Smith is still recovering from his injuries and remains on medical leave, according to WJCL 22.

The man looks over at Smith a second time but continues to walk down the road. Smith told him to take his hand out or he would "be tasered".

Dr. James Dunne, an emergency room physician, testified that a bullet completely severed a vein in Smith's neck.

After radioing in his location and the suspect's description, the wounded officer slumped down on the ground next to his cruiser. "I am going to stay here with you".

But Smith said he forgives Orr - and even prays for him and his family.

The horrific scene and near death of Smith was captured on the video released Thursday, a day after the conviction and sentencing of Orr, who faces 35 years in prison for attempted murder and gun-related charges, South Carolina's 14th Circuit's Solicitor's Office said in a news release.
