The dramatic scene was filmed on the deputy’s body camera when he scaled the outside of an apartment building to save a one-year-old daughter from a fire early Saturday, officials said.
The baby and her mother were attempting to flee after a fire broke out at the Isles at East Millenia complex, according to a news release from the Orange County Sheriff’s Office.
According to the press release, deputies arrived at the site shortly before 4:15 a.m. and discovered the mother and infant on a third-floor balcony with flames emanating from the apartment.
According to the footage, Deputy William Puzynski climbed to the second-floor balcony, snatched the infant from her mother, and lowered her to other deputies below.
