DES MOINES, Iowa (CIRCA via WPEC) — Dramatic video shows police officers rescuing several young children, who had to be thrown from the third floor window of a burning house in Iowa.
"Send them down, I got them," said one officer. One second later a young child lands in his arms. The child is crying.
"Keep going," he said.
Two more children come flying down when other officers show up to help. Police couldn't get to the third floor because of the thick smoke.
"We got to get a ladder over here quick," yelled one of the officers.
"Hurry please," screams the woman who just launched the children to the officers below.
The children are doing fine.
The Des Moines Police Department thanked its officers on Facebook, identifying the heroes as Senior Police Officers Cole Johnson, Craig Vasquez, Tyler Kelley, and Casey Sanders.
