A Jamestown, NY, police officer is being hailed as a hero after incredible footage from his body camera showed him responding to a building engulfed in flames before saving the occupants’ lives by catching them when they jumped out of a window.

Officer Conklin can then be seen running to the burning home where he found “children and an adult trapped in the upstairs of the residence,” according to the Jamestown Police Department.

Conklin directed them to jump from the window, ABC News reports.

“I got you! I got you!” Conklin yelled at a person in the burning building. “Jump! I got you, I got you!”

Authorities did not disclose how many people Conklin was able to save or their condition after the fire but there were no reported deaths in the incident.
