New York Cop Catches Family Jumping From Burning Home

New York Cop Catches Family Jumping From Burning Home

A heroic New York cop comes to the rescue when he catches a family jumping from the second story of their burning home.

Officer Mark Conklin of the Jamestown Police Department found out about a nearby fire when he was answering a service call while he was on duty. He didn’t have on any heat protection but ran straight to the fire to see how he could help.

His bodycam footage shows Officer Conklin race to the scene of the house where it was engulfed in flames. What a terrifying sight! In the house was an adult and children trapped inside.

Officer Conklin encouraged the family trapped in the burning house to jump. He successfully caught them, saving their lives. What a true hero!

The house that caught on fire belonged to the Rivera family. Hector and Brooke Rivera are husband and wife and have four children between the ages of 3 and 12.

Their house was completely destroyed, and they lost everything in it. But at least they didn’t lose each other, thanks to Officer Conklin. In order to help out the family, the Jamestown Police Department set up a GoFundMe page for the family to help raise money for them to get back on their feet.

This heroic act by Officer Conklin shows us what protect and serve really means. Without a second thought, he jumped right in to save this family and did exactly what he was trained to do.

Tim Jackson, the Jamestown Police Chief, said Officer Conklin’s actions were one of the most outstanding examples of bravery, heroism, and exemplary service he has ever seen.

May God continue to look out for Officer Conklin as he protects and serves his community. And may God watch over the Rivera family as they recover from this traumatic event of losing their home.
