It looks like a few Kendall County deputies are getting ready for their close up!

The series Body Cam, which can be seen on Investigation Discovery, which can be found on discovery+,  features the actual footage of the daily activities of law enforcement officers throughout the country. The video is combined with firsthand accounts to provide insight into the dangerous situations that officers encounter daily.

The show is doing a story on three Kendall County heroes who rescued two people and their dog from a burning house in Montgomery in January. Giving their accounts of the incident will be Deputies Sam Markusic, Jacquie Mielke, and Tyler Giannotti. The actual bodycam footage can be seen below which shows a deputy running to the back of the burning building and trying to catch individuals who jumped from a second-story window! It’s incredible stuff!

It’s great that our local heroes will get to tell their stories on a national stage!

No word on when their episode will air.

Thanks to them, and all the other first responders who go unnoticed. We are truly thankful!
