Body cam footage shows fearless officer rescuing a wounded mother and her children

The Volusia County, Florida sheriff's office released dramatic video of a deputy running into a gun battle to rescue a woman who had been shot while her three young children watched.

The body camera footage shows the officer's gallant response and rescue.

The woman told deputies she was in the process of separating from her husband when he showed up at their house.  According to the sheriff's office, the woman asked him to leave, but he kept breaking into her bedroom.  

The children range in age from 23 months to  7 years old.

Investigators said someone inside the home fired shots at deputies on two occasions. Two deputies returned fire.

Deputy Justin Ferrari rushed up to the house and found an injured woman who had crawled out of the home with a gunshot wound to the back of her leg. The deputy dragged her to safety.

Deputy Ferrari then whisked the three young children away to a neighbor's home. They were crying hysterically as they rushed into his arms.

Deputies say the woman's husband came out of the house and surrendered. He's been identified as 26-year old Emmanuel Rosado. Deputies say he shot his wife with a 9mm handgun.
