Officers from the New Haven Police Department saved a woman’s life on July 30th. One of the officer’s body-cams captured the daring rescue.
Officers pleaded with the woman not to jump as she clung to the chain-link fence around the perimeter of the roof.
After nearly an hour standing over the pavement, an officer saw his chance to reach for the woman. The officer offered the woman ice cubes. As she got closer to the officer, he reached out to her. Several other officers then rushed in to pull her to safety.
