Above the Call: CDCR employee pulls children from car while sparks fly from power lines

A Pleasant Valley State Prison supervising correctional cook was on his way home when he saw an SUV begin swerving, crash through a power pole and end up in a ditch. When he stopped to help, a badly shaken mother, carrying a small child, told him two more children were trapped in the car. So Carlos Rodriguez rolled up his sleeves and jumped into action to help pull the children from the vehicle, just as sparks began to fly from the downed power lines.
