Lancaster Sheriff’s Station Deputies rescue 2 occupants from burning car; presented with ALADS Life Saving Award

On the night of January 16, 2017, while patrolling the streets of the City of Lancaster, Deputies Williams and Rodriguez received a call for service of a single vehicle traffic collision.

When they arrived, they found a vehicle on fire, with two occupants trapped inside. The victims had significant injuries, one with a broken back (later discovered with internal injuries) and the second occupant with a compound leg fracture.

Even though the car was on fire, Deputies Williams and Rodriguez paid no mind to their own safety, battled the flames and pulled both occupants out of the vehicle. Within 60 seconds of pulling the second occupant out, the car was fully engulfed.

On Saturday, June 8, 2019, Deputy R. Williams and A. Rodriguez were presented with the Association for Los Angeles Deputy Sheriffs - ALADS Life Saving Award.

Los Angeles County Fire Department Captain Garcia of Station 135, said the deputies undoubtedly saved the lives of both occupants.
A phenomenal job done by Lancaster Sheriff’s Station Deputies Rodriguez and Williams!
