Panama City, FL – Florida deputy rescues 3-year-old hiding under table during house fire

Panama City, FL –

FLAGLER COUNTY, FL (WFLA) – The video shows a Florida MP rescuing a 3-year-old boy from a house fire on Sunday.

According to the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office, first responders arrived at a house along the Palm Coast in northeast Florida where a neighbor said a fire had started in the kitchen . It was not immediately clear whether the three residents, whom the neighbor had not seen that day, were at home.

The fire spread from the stove to the cabinets and filled the house with black smoke, according to the sheriff’s office.

Body camera video shows Deputy First Class K-9 Marcus Dawson knocking on the front and back door unanswered. While on the back patio, Dawson saw the 3-year-old in a bedroom and immediately entered to get him out.

“I want my mother,” the little boy said when Dawson asked him where his mother was.

The sheriff’s office said the child was fearfully hiding under blankets and watching a cartoon. After finding the child, Dawson transported the boy out of the house for medical treatment.

“Without DFC Dawson immediately running into danger, even without a safety respirator, it could have been a much different outcome,” Sheriff Rick Staly said.

The sheriff’s office said the child’s father told MPs he had gone to get dinner and let the child sleep at home with an older brother. No injuries were reported.

At that time, firefighters believed the house fire was accidental and related to cooking.
