12/11/2018 9:23am

Harrowing police body cam footage shows a group of police officers working quickly to rescue a family from a burning second-floor apartment, one of them scaling the house to hand off children and grandparents to his colleagues below as they shouted his name from below.One of the rescuing officers was off-duty Port Authority Police OfficerJohn Shaughnessy, who was just coming out the door of his North Brunswick townhouse with his dog about 10:30 p.m. when he saw flames leaping from the first floor of condo units just 50 yards from his own. Skip Hop Recalls TUO High Chairs After Reports of Legs Detaching Shaughnessy sprang into duty, dropping his dog off and immediately running to the fire in the Governors Pointe condos on Albury Way to join other first responders in banging on doors and windows to wake people up and get them out.Just as they came back to where they started, they got wind of a family trapped on a second floor balcony. Fearless Girl Takes New Position Opposite the NYSE The whole entire walkway that would be their front door was engulfed in flames so the only way for them to come out was the balcony and even that was close to the flames, Shaughnessy said.Dramatic body camera footage provided by the North Brunswick Police Department shows the harrowing rescue: one of the responding officers, Joseph Grassco, climbed up to the balcony and started lowering the family members -- two grandparents and two young children -- down toShaughnessy and others. Christmas Tree Farmers Combat Popularity of Artificial Trees The other officers were heard shouting, Joey Joey and directing him as he dropped the children into the arms of the officers below.A neighbor caught Shaughnessy on video as he ran from the burning building with one of the children, a girl about 4 years old, cradled in his arms. Her little brother, about six months old, was also lowered down safely.She grabbed me, put her arms around me and I just ran across the road as fast as I could. Shuaghnessy said.I didnt realize how close the flames were to the balcony until I saw the video.The children were calm and unharmed, he said, and his neighbor bundled them up and looked after them -- with the help of popular kids show PAW Patrol --until they were able to be collected.Everyone got of the condo alive thanks to the work of the North Brunswick Fire and Police departments, he said, although many of the units will have to be demolished.We are happy to report that in the end, there were no serious injuries,said North Brunswick Police Captain Brian Hoiberg.

Girl Gives Lost $3 to Cops; They Give It Back 14 Years Later
12/11/2018 9:59am

Twelve-year-old Paige Woodie found $3 on the street in Monmouth Beach in 2004, and like the Girl Scout she once was, dutifully walked to the police department and turned the money in to officers.Some 14 years later, the police appeared at her front door with an envelope. Girl Named Alexa, 6, Bullied Due to Amazon Device: Parents Turns out the Monmouth Beach Police Department had held onto the money in evidence all those years. Since no one ever claimed it, they returned it to Woodie -- though she inadvertently got a little scare first.They said do you remember what you did in 2004, Woodie told News 4. I looked back to 2004 - I couldnt have done anything that bad. Cafe Blasted for Texts to Student Who Wanted Off for Funeral Thats when police reminded her about the money and handed it over.Its a Christmas miracle, she said.Woodies not actually $3 richer, though she has to split the money with her friend Jackie Bradley, who was with her when they found it and turned it in.I think we should all expect our children to do that and really expect nothing less from them. If you raise your kids right theyre going to be honest and theyre going grow up to be honest and hopefully thats what we can all take from the story, Monmouth Beach Police Sgt. Jeff Godwin told News 4.Photo Credit: News 4 New York
