    Surveillance Video:



    Bonnie Adhemy
    DOB: 10/10/58
    7017 San Ramon Place
    Tampa, FL

    Deputies Involved:

    Robert Klocksieben

    On April 11, 2017 at 8:54 p.m., deputies responded to 7017 San Ramon Place in reference to an apartment fire. When deputies arrived, most of the residents had fled the building. As deputies worked on accounting for all of the occupants, a resident informed them they did not know where Bonnie Adhemy was and that she had medical issues and was only partially ambulatory. The building had a substantial amount of smoke inside, but deputies entered to search for Adhemy. The deputies forced entry into the apartment and were able to find Adhemy and carry her outside to safety.

    The fire started in apartment 101, but affected the entire building. HCFR felt Ms. Adhemy would not be able to stay in her apartment due to the residual smoke and she would not have been able to make it through the smoke by herself given her medical conditions. The deputies risked their own safety to preserve her life.

    A resident from an adjacent apartment took video of the deputies' actions in trying to rescue Ms. Adhemy.
