Five Children Among Nine Family Members Killed In Arizona Flash Flood

Police Officer Albert Salaiz was the first to respond to the call of an injured child in southwest Phoenix.

Salaiz had joined the Phoenix Police Department in 2000 after a long career in the Air Force, flying politicians to Europe. He was working patrol again, after a stint on a squad that took on violent crime syndicates.

That morning, July 12, 2011, Salaiz left the Estrella Mountain precinct to tell county prosecutors what he knew about a high-profile home invasion involving rival drug gangs, a big shootout and gangsters posing as SWAT teams.

Then came the injured-child call. Salaiz was a couple blocks away, so he went. How could he not? A child in danger. On his beat. All the natural instincts of a veteran cop kicked in.
