Florida Police Officers Rescue Blind Woman From Burning Building

Body camera footage captured the moment two Miami Beach police officers ran into a burning and smoke-filled building on Monday night, April 9, to save a blind woman.

Miami Beach Police Department released footage of Officer Alex Llaneras and Ralph Vega rescuing Shelley Spitz, who is legally blind, from the building.

ABC 10 News reported a slow cooker that had been left on overnight by accident sparked the fire. The fire caused considerable damage to the kitchen but fortunately did not spread to other parts of the house.

The two officers, Shelley Spitz and her husband, Manishjay Spitz, were treated for smoke inhalation. They are now staying with neighbors while their house gets repaired, according to the news station.
