PORT ST. LUCIE, FL (WFLX) - Some quick thinking police officers helped rescue a special needs teen from a burning home.
When the cops arrived at a home on Bridgeport Drive in Port St. Lucie late Friday night, they found the homeowner outside with a garden hose trying to put out the fire.
He told the officers his 14-year-old son was inside -- unable to walk on his own -- and hooked up to oxygen.
"One of the officers got the fire extinguisher out of vehicle and made a passageway through the home, putting out flames along the way where the homeowner, rescue and officers were able to rescue boy," said Tom Nichols, St. Lucie County Police Department.
The cause of the fire was traced to a window air conditioning unit.
The sergeant on duty that night has recommended those three officers, Matthew Bianco, Suzannie Moore and Jason Chapman, be given the Life Saving Award.
