BENSALEM TOWNSHIP, Pa. — Three Pennsylvania police officers are being hailed as heroes after they pulled an unconscious man from a burning home, bodycam video shows. 

According to FOX 5, officers Steve Ambs, Kenneth Branford and Samuel Ladd responded to the fire on Aug. 25. Using a flashlight, the officers found a man lying on the floor. At first, the officers had to run back outside for fresh air, but they quickly returned and carried the man to safety. 

The man was taken to a hospital and last reported in stable condition, reported FOX 5. 

"You kind of blackout in the moment, but I remember just pulling him out and getting him out to safety, and then we went to check to make sure no one else was back in there," Ladd told FOX 5. 

The officers were praised for their heroism in a meeting with Bucks County District Attorney Matt Weintraub. 

"We are all very blessed to have each of you protecting us as we go about our lives,” Weintraub said.
