The Delray Beach police responded to a call on Saturday of a woman and children standing on a roof.
When the officers arrived on the scene, they found a 23-year-old woman who was hallucinating with her two small children. The three were on the garage ledge on a townhouse, approximately 18 feet from the ground.
One of the officers, Rob Addea, immediately positioned himself under the window, so that he would be ready to catch a child or the woman if necessary. “Just get the kids back inside!” he implored. “Please. Please. That’s all we want you to do.”
The Washington Post reported that it was "4 p.m. Saturday, and police in Delray Beach, Fla., had apparently just stumbled into someone’s madness."
“It appeared that the children would either fall or be pushed off the roof by [the woman] herself … which would have caused certain serious injury and/or death to them both,” a police report said.
Meanwhile, the other two other officers went upstairs and out a window to the ledge to attempt a rescue. One officer managed to grab the children's arms while the other tried to reason with the woman, police said.
Police eventually were able to rescue all of them. The woman has been committed to a mental health facility under the Baker Act and might face criminal charges, police said.
The Florida Department of Children and Families is investigating and the children are in their custody.
