The newest hero for APTI is Sgt. Joe Hudson of the Griffin Police Department in Georgia. What did Sgt. Hudson do? Only saved a three-year-old from a burning, smoke-filled home! Sgt. Hudson was alerted to a house fire and responded. On arrival, the resident told him her three-year-old grandson was still inside the burning home. Sgt. Hudson rushed back into the home and found the young boy lying on a bed in the back of the house. He evacuated the young boy and took him to safety through a side door. After getting them both out of the house, Sgt. Hudson, himself a parent of three children, comforted the boy until he was returned to his grandmother. Sgt. Hudson's actions earned him recognition by the national news media and a big hug and a kiss from one very happy grandmother! What makes this story even more amazing is that the entire rescue was recorded on Sgt. Hudson's body-worn camera!
