Police save bar owner
Two police officers have been hailed as heroes after saving the life of a bar owner in a botched robbery in Madrid.
He managed to raise the alarm before smoke from a fire in the premises rendered him unconscious. It is not known how this was started but is believed to have been connected to the incident in which two men burst in to the bar and tried to commit a robbery.
When the police arrived, the bar was substantially on fire but using their flashlights because of zero visibility, they eventually found the owner on the floor behind the bar. They pulled him to safety and he was rushed to hospital suffering from smoke inhalation but survived.
