DETROIT (WDIV) — Two Detroit police officers jumped into action Friday riding on a front-end loader to rescue two people who were trapped in icy flood waters because of a water main break on the city’s east side.
Detroit Police Sgt. Jamal Hamood and his partner, Steven Triner, held on as the loader moved through the massive flood on Gratiot Avenue near Conner Street.
“There was water up to their seats. They were crouched up on their seats on the car. hey weren’t sure if they could even move their legs. We weren’t sure if we could even get them out of the vehicle,” Hamood said. “But we were able to pull them out. Thank God. They were OK.”
