Metro honors police for heroism
Metro Transit Police Officer Christopher Fulda and four fellow officers won special recognition for heroism Thursday for kicking in a door and rescuing several residents from a burning building near the Naylor Road Station last month.
The officers were recognized at a Metro board of directors meeting.
Fulda heard two explosions April 9 at a nearby condominium followed by women screaming for help, and rushed to the building to rescue an elderly woman lying on the floor of a smoke-filled apartment.
Officers Anthony Reefer, Jamie Lopera, Cleaton Battle and Reginald Russell arrived to help other residents evacuate, including a woman in a wheelchair.
