A dashboard camera video shows Cpl. James Keane of the Los Alamos Police Department helping a resident out of his burning home last week.
Keane, who was on patrol in North Mesa May 15, spotted the smoke coming from the home in Tsikamu Village and notified the county’s dispatch center.
“Cpl. Keane then proceeded to the residence and located a two Los Alamos citizens that had breached a raised glass door trying to gain access to a 57 year old male that was still inside the residence,” said a press release from the LAPD today. “Cpl. Keane radioed that person(s) were inside the residence.”
According to the video, Keane entered the building and aided Nat Farnham, one of the residents of the home, to the edge of a glass doorway where he and other nearby residents helped pull Farnham out.
“I want to commend the citizens, Cpl. James Keane and (Los Alamos Fire Department) for their quick action during this emergency,” said LAPD Commander Oliver Morris.
