Prompt action by Delhi Police personnel saved three people, including an 87-year-old woman, who were trapped in their house after a fire broke out. The policemen rushed to save the family in south Delhi's Greater Kailash-1 after they got a distress call at 6:55 am on Friday.
The fire started on the second floor of the building. It spread to the third floor by the time the police team reached there. Head Constable Munshilal and Constable Sandip, listed at Great Kailash Police Station, risked their lives and climbed up the third floor of a building. The residents were stuck at the balcony of the house.
The two policemen talked with the family to calm them down and coordinate the rescue. The family was later rescued after fire department officials reached the spot. It took four fire engines to douse the fire, officials said.
