NYPD officer Artur Kasprzak dies after helping save seven family membersAn off-duty New York City police officer died in his own basement after saving seven members of his family from rising floodwaters. Officer Artur Kasprzak, who died on Monday, was 28 and had been on the NYPD for six years. Now, more details of Kasprzak's heroic actions are coming to light.
CBS New York reports that on Monday, with water pouring into his Staten Island home, Kasprzak helped move six adults and his 15-month-old nephew into his home's attic. He then went back down to the basement to look for his father. Unknown to Kasprzak, his father had already exited the house and was on his way up to the attic via a different path. Kasprzak never returned.
A family member he rescued called 911 to report him missing. A team of rescuers arrived but was unable to search the basement due to downed power lines. When it was deemed safe to search, around 11 hours later, Kasprzak's body was discovered by authorities.

"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
-General Omar Bradley, United States Army
