According to reports smugglers had stuffed her in a duffle bag to smuggle her inside the United States.
The rescue above is just one of the many instances law enforcement officers put their lives on the line.
We previously posted about two officers in Milwaukee who also put their lives on the line to save two teenagers.
The two officers were out on patrol when they saw is 1999 Pontiac Grand Am lose control and slam into a utility pole.
Officers Nicholas Schlei and Nicholas Reid dragged teenagers out of a car after they witnessed them crash into a utility pole, resulting in the car bursting into flames.
An officer can be heard screaming in the video, “You guys back up, car’s on fire, back up!”
The MPD statement said, “Officers Schlei, Reid, and other officers from District Four risked their own lives and pulled the driver, a 16-year-old Milwaukee male, and another teenage male passenger from the car. A third teenage male passenger from the vehicle was located nearby.”
Reid said, “First thing that went through my mind is, get these kids out or whoever the occupants are, get them out. So at that point, it’s get them to safety, worry about the car later.”
