The NYPD took to social media to praise two officers who recently saved a man’s life in Sheepshead Bay after he fell off of a roof and was trapped for “several days.”  
The 61st Precinct received a call for a man that had fallen and was trapped behind a building. They were unable to find him for days.  
That’s when officers Santiago and Hionas dug deeper and continued to investigate, eventually finding the man trapped in an alleyway near where the call first came in. Police say the man fell two stories, suffering injuries to his entire body.  
Police say he was taken to the hospital and reunited with his family.
