In the footage posted by the Des Moines Police Department, officers Cole Johnson, Craig Vasquez, Tyler Kelley, and Casey Sanders can be heard encouraging the mother to drop the children as they catch them one by one.

"Send them down. I got them," an officer says in the video.

"Keep going," he says. "I got them, I got them. Go!"


The video ends before it shows the officers rescuing Harrison, but she also made it out of the building unharmed.

"I can't say thank you enough to them," the mother, O'Sheana Harrison, told NBC 13. "I owe them the world, because they saved my world."
