A video showing Deputy William Puzynski climbing to a third-floor balcony to rescue a baby girl from a raging fire went viral on social media earlier this week.
The baby girl’s mom, Barbara Elenus, wanted to thank Puzynski and the other deputies who saved her life and the life of her daughter, Sophia.
Barbara stopped by the Orange County Sheriff’s Office to surprise them and hug them.
The fire destroyed Barbara’s home. The mother of four is currently staying in a hotel while she and her family recover.
If you care to help, the owner of Too Much Sauce, where Barbara works, created a GoFundMe: https://bit.ly/3OJfl5t.
