Man from San Diego decided to commit mass suicide with two 2-year-old daughters: Officer managed to get all 3 alive from a drowning car
Thanks to the heroic efforts of a San Diego police officer, Jonathan Wiese, two 2-year-old girls and their biological father were saved after falling from a cliff into the water. According to the official version, the father, 47-year-old Robert Brians, decided to commit suicide and stole two little girls from the care of his ex-wife.
Fortunately, the K9 officer Wiese arrived at the scene on time. According to the policeman, he himself has a family and two daughters, so he did not hesitate to go down a slope on a safety cable for a second and pulled out the children and the man.
“I could see [the man], and he had one of the girls in his arms, and I have a 2-year-old daughter at home, so I imagined, ‘What if that was my wife and kid down there?’” he told KNSD. “You’re not going to stand there on the cliff and watch it happen.”
By the time the officer began to rescue the drowning, one girl had already lost consciousness. Jonathan Wiese performed artificial respiration and kids were soon taken by an ambulance.
To date, fundraising has been organized for affected twin girls on GoFundMe.
“The girls had been at a relatives home Friday June 12th to see their father for a planned visit with them until he had to say goodnight and leave. In the early hours the following morning they were taken with out permission by their father. Jenna received numerous calls and texts from him clearly stating she may not see her kids again. At approximately 4:30am Jenna called law enforcement for help and right after got the girls father back on the phone while they pinpointed his location”.
Robert Brians was arrested for two counts of attempted murder, two counts of kidnapping, one count of burglary and two counts of child cruelty, online records show. He is being held without bail, and it was unclear if he has retained an attorney, reports KGTV.
