Three officers and citizens rescue child trapped under car

Boca Raton, FL -- There were some scary moments just after 8:00 a.m. on Wednesday, when a 6 year old getting out of his grandfather's car at the Verde Elementary School tripped and fell in front of an approaching vehicle. The child was pinned under the vehicle until Boca Raton police officers arrived and with the assistance of a couple of bystanders, were able to lift the car while another person pulled the child out. Motor Officer Mike Daly, Officer Bruce Sonnenblick and Community Service Officer Ernie Bucinskas were the first to arrive and quickly worked together to lift the car just enough to rescue the trapped child. The child was taken to Delray Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.
