On Saturday, December 8th at approximately 10:30 p.m., off-duty Port Authority Police Officer John Shaughnessy was leaving his townhouse to walk his dog in North Brunswick, NJ, when he observed flames coming from the 1st floor of condominium units approximately 50 yards from his unit.  The officer immediately went to assist as North Brunswick Police began to arrive on scene. Officer Shaughnessy and the responding North Brunswick officers began banging on windows and the walls of the first floor units to alert the occupants about the fire. The officers eventually saw a family of four trapped on a second floor balcony. One of responding officers climbed up to the second floor and was successfully able to lower two children and their grandparents down to Officer Shaughnessy with the assistance of additional police personnel who had arrived on scene. #PAPD #PANYNJ #PAPDPROTECTSNYNJ
