Boca Raton Police officers honored for rescuing boy from under car

BOCA RATON — Three Boca Raton Police Services officers who helped free a boy trapped underneath a car were honored recently by the Safety Council of Palm Beach County.

Officer Mike Daly, Officer Bruce Sonnenblick and Community Service Officer Ernie Bucinskas received the Council’s Heroism award at a ceremony on March 8th.

The three men responded to the Verde Elementary school last September after receiving information that a boy was trapped under a car in the drop-off area of the school.  Six year old Domenic DeRoberts slipped off of the curb and became trapped under a car approaching the drop off area.

The three officers along with others at the scene lifted the car enough so Domenic could be pulled out.
