Days after a pickup truck crashed into a pond, killing a father and daughter, Fairfield police released body camera footage from responding officers.
The video released Friday shows one of the first officers on scene Monday night, a view of the pond in the Villages of Wildwood complex as well as beginning rescue efforts and contact with a rescued 4-year-old boy and bystanders who entered the pond, Fairfield police Maj. Amy Mays said.
Morance D. Harrison Sr., 35, and his daughter, 6-year-old Nena Harrison, of Forest Park, drowned in the pond after police say Harrison Sr. was “doing donuts” when the truck went into the water with his two children inside.
Morance Harrison Jr., 4 who survived, said his father brought him to the surface before he went back under to get his sister. Neither resurfaced.
