14 Officers Honored for Saving 2 Men in Burning Car


Byline: Harry Hitzeman Legal Affairs Writer

If a Baker's Dozen is 13, what's a catchy phrase for 14?

That might be needed in after the city's police department honored 12 officers and two sergeants for helping two people whose car caught fire after crashing into a tree.

At about 12:30 a.m. May 27, officers were dispatched to the 600 block of North Avenue and found a 1995 Plymouth Neon on fire.

Two males, ages 16 and 39, were stuck inside to where the fire had spread. Officers were unable to open the car doors, so they ended up using 10 fire extinguishers to keep the two men -- the teen had a broken femur -- from being burned until firefighters arrived, to put out the flames and to extricate the victims.

"Fabulous 14" doesn't exactly roll off the tongue.

Aurora Police Chief Greg Thomas opted for other words.

"The actions of these officers defines true heroism and illustrates the commitment of the Aurora police to protect the lives of our citizens. As one firefighter on the scene was heard saying, 'The efforts of the police officers saved these guys tonight,'" Thomas said in a statement.

The officers recognized as June's Employees of the Month were: Brian Baumann, Christopher Grandchamp, Enrique Huerta, Sandra Martinez, Christopher Cox, John Gray, Laura Kolanowski, Sandra Navarrete, Aendri Decker, Kyle Hoffman, Ramon Lopez and Steven Pacenti.
