Girl in Mahwah condo fire jumps 3 stories into arms of police
MAHWAH, N.J. — A trio of Mahwah police officers thought they’d evacuated all of the residents from a raging Mahwah condominium fire Tuesday afternoon when they spotted a 9-year-old girl on a third-floor balcony.
“We called out to her to jump — and she did!” Lt. Jeffrey Dino told Daily Voice moments later at the Society Hill condominium complex.
“We caught her!” one of them shouted as little Sofya Doroshenko nestled into their arms after trust-falling backwards from the railing.
“Not a scratch on her,” Dino said. “She’s the bravest little kid I’ve ever seen.”
“They saved my child!” mother Yulia Doroshenko told Daily Voice. “I don’t know what to say.
