Nashville cops who "ran to danger" in Christmas explosion hailed as heroes

Mayor John Cooper said the six local cops took “swift action” to evacuate people in the city’s downtown area as a parked RV blared a warning that a bomb would detonate in 15 minutes.

“These incredible heroes who ran to danger with uncertain outcomes ahead of them were responsible for so many injuries being saved,” Cooper said in an evening press conference.

The brave cops “took swift action and directed people away to save lives — even at the time when their own lives would have been in peril.”

“They are heroes and I am grateful to them.”
