Cops Rescue Citizens
- Two Chicago police officers kicked in doors to rescue South Shore apartment building residents from an early morning fire.
The Grand Crossing District officers were responding to a call about a fight in the area about 1 a.m. when they saw smoke coming from the top of the building at 7241 S. Stony Island Ave.
Officer Christopher Davis said he and partner Kristopher Krizka kicked in the main entrance door and began evacuating residents from the four-story building.
- The officers saved their lives, said Julius Riley, a second-floor resident.
"If it wasn't for the Chicago Police Department, there's no telling where we would be right now," he said. "We have a woman in a wheelchair on the upper floor. They carried her down the stairs and got her out. If it weren't for them the whole building would have burned down as well."
A job very well done.
