A man had collapsed inside a Sylmar home that was on fire back in July. Peter Daut, CBS Los Angeles, reports.
Bodycams from four Los Angeles police officers who risked their lives to rescue a man from a Sylmar house fire in July 2018 were released Wednesday April 10, 2019.
Police officers Luis Lopez, Ken Morales, Jose Moya and Christina Shente had only been with the LAPD for a few years.
On a Tuesday night July 10, 2018, police discovered a fire in a house in the block of 13600 block of Brussels Avenue in the Sylmar neighborhood in Los Angeles. The officers were on their way to another call when they spotted the fire. Neighbors told the police officers a man was inside the home. The Sylmar neighborhood is located northwest of Los Angeles in the San Fernando Valley.
The four quickly ran in to help, only equipped with a neighbor’s hose and a baton to break a sliding glass door.
Body camera footage showed the officers carrying the man out of the home just before flames pushed out of a window.
The man, age 50 to 60, was transported to a hospital, where he was listed in critical condition.
The police officers were treated for minor smoke inhalation.
