Michigan Troopers Jim Leonard and Rick Carlson-pressrelease

Before firefighters could arrive, two state troopers charged into a raging house fire to save an unconscious 2-year-old boy in Gaylord, Michigan.

Police said troopers Jim Leonard and Rick Carlson “held their breath and closed their eyes” after spying, from a window, a crib in the corner of the room. They dragged it out of a patio door they had broken into and started CPR on the boy who had no pulse.

“This is why we put the uniform on every day,” State Police Sgt. Jeff Gorno told WFMY News-2.
