After saving man's life, officers won't call themselves heroes

Posted: Updated:

Two Minneapolis Police Officers helped save a Minneapolis man's life after his legs were severed in a train accident. A week later, they talked about being the first on the scene but want to stop short of calling themselves heroes.

Officers Oscar Mecias and Shawn Kelly were the first to arrive on the scene of after Daniel Edmonson had been struck by a moving train which led to his legs being severed and although their actions were critical in saving his life, both say they were just doing their job.

"I immediately applied the tourniquet and a few seconds later, Officer Kelly arrived and applied the tourniquet on the other leg," Officer Mecias said.

The officers had received additional emergency injury response for the last three years. Training that most likely saved Edmonson's life.
