Emergency responders risk their lives and limbs to rescue people and animals in need of help. They never think twice about putting themselves in desperate situations so that they can save lives. This is why they are regarded as modern-day heroes. One of them is a detective from the Ewing Police Department named Julia Caldwell.
She became the topic of headlines when she rescued a trapped dog inside a burning house in New Jersey. Footage caught by her body camera has also gone viral and earned a lot of praise from netizens.
The fateful event happened at nine in the morning on Browning Avenue in the town of Ewing. Firefighters and police officers immediately responded to the call. Julia arrived as well.
As seen on her body camera, the concerned officer was seen rushing to the burning house. Once she was there, she peeked inside and saw a helpless dog, locked inside a cage. She called out to her fellow responders and told them what she saw. Julia then asked for help to get inside the house.
The officers went around the property and found an unlocked window. Julia then asked to be pushed inside.
Once she was in the living room, the officer went to the cage and unlocked it. The dog was nervous but was glad to have someone rescue him. Julia then picked up the dog and covered him with a blanket. She then went back to the window and handed the frightened pup to her fellow officers.
While Julia was climbing out of the burning home, she heard a report coming from her radio that no one else is in the house. The only possible victim would have been the family pet. But thanks to the brave cop, the pup was out of the house before anything worse could have happened to the poor dog.
