Grass Valley, California — Grass Valley police released body camera footage showing a police officer rescuing a man from a burning house. Officers were called to the home on East Empire Street for reports that a person was trapped inside on Feb. 18. Officers first checked the front of the home and were met with nothing but smoke and flames. Officer Jonathan Brown was running out of options when he made the decision to check inside a side door, according to the Grass Valley Police Chief Alex Gammelgard. That’s when he found the man, identified in the video as Corey, who lived there inside, on the ground.
The officer is heard shouting the man’s name, and kicking in a side door where he found Corey unconscious on the ground. He grabbed Corey’s feet and dragged him out of the house “I got him,” the officer is heard saying on the video. “Go get a medic!”. The man had third-degree burns to his legs and may have burned his lungs, but medics got to him in time. He is still at the UC Davis Medical Center healing from severe burns but is in stable condition.
