When there is a house in flames, first responders know that they have to get to work as fast as possible. But when, on top of that, there are lives on the line, they know they also have to put on their invisible superhero capes.
William Puzynski, a sheriff’s deputy in Florida, had to do just that when he jumped into superhero mode to save a baby girl’s life.
The rescue happened early on a Saturday morning, when a third-story apartment with a grandmother, a mother, and a 1-year-old girl, caught on fire.
Deputy Puzynski knew there was no time to waste. He quickly climbed the second-floor balcony where the mother of the crying baby handed her to him.
Shortly after, firefighters rescued the mother and grandmother.
In a nerve-wracking video captured by a body camera, Deputy Puzynski can be heard saying “hand me the baby, hand me the baby. We are coming.” The mother then says “Please, come get me.”
Thankfully, no one got seriously injured during this incident, and this baby is now safe and sound with her mom and grandma.
Talk about a real-life superhero!
