Cop Does The Unthinkable After Hearing Screams Coming From Apartment

San Antonio Texas Police Officer Tim Bowen and his partner arrived at a burning apartment building before firefighters got there.

“We just drove up and we saw the building in full bloom,” said Bowen, according to Mad World News.

When checking the perimeter of the building, Bowen heard children screaming and was terrified by what he saw. Four children, between the ages of 4 and 9-years-old, in a second-floor apartment. Thick black smoke was billowing out of the apartment and Bowen knew he had to act fast to bring the frightened children to safety. He didn’t have any equipment to rescue the children so he tried to convince them to jump out of the window.

“Just hoping they would come to me,” Bowen explained. “They didn’t want to at first, but I talked to them and talked to them.”

Eventually, he was able to convince three of the children to make the 10 to 12 foot drop into his arms.

“They finally gave in and trusted me,” Bowen said. “The fourth one, a little boy, he wouldn’t come out. He was scared.”

The child ran back inside the burning building, but luckily firefighters had just arrived and retrieved the boy. Now Bowen is being hailed as a hero.

“Officer Bowen SAPD a hero today. Catches 3 children; jumped out apt. window… caught by SAPD,” the fire department tweeted.

Bowen was modest about his act of heroism and said it’s just a part of his job and that any other officer would have done the same.

“That’s why we’re here,” he said. “To help people.”
