WASHINGTON: The call came in, and within minutes, U.S. Park Police Sgt. Ken Burchell piloted his helicopter to “what might be described as a hot zone” — the scene of a mass shooting at the Washington Navy Yard.

Burchell says he was too focused on his rescue mission to worry that he, also, might, be a target for the shooter

He told reporters a day after Monday’s incident, “Frankly at that point you’re too busy.”

As Burchell piloted the helicopter, Sgt. Dave Tolson operated the rescue basket to pick up a woman who had been evacuated to the roof.

Tolson said he attempted to the calm and reassure the woman, who had been shot and lost a significant amount of blood. He says, “I found her to be extremely brave.”
