Russia: Ingenious police officers rescue people from burning house

Russian Federation, Korolov
November 20, 2019 at 18:46 GMT -00:00 · Published

Two heroic police officers from the General Administration for Traffic Safety rescued people from a burning house in Korolov near Moscow on Wednesday.

The officers, senior lieutenants Dmitry Budychev and Igor Pomytkin, were on a routine patrolling mission as they detected smoke coming out of a residential building, immediately calling the emergency services.

When the officers reached the burning house, they understood there were still people inside and that there was no time to wait for the fire brigade to arrive.

"We got to the house and saw that people from both floors of the house were asking for help. Leaving our patrol car, we decided to stop a GAZelle van to rescue the residents who were asking for help," said Budychev.

Bulychev and Pomytkin parked the van next to the house so that the trapped residents were able to jump out of a second floor window and onto the car.

The officers also managed to get other residents out of the burning building, and no one was injured in the fire.
