A detective with the Emergency Service Unit of the NYPD, Scott and his team rescued many, including Will Jimeno. It took Scott’s team over three hours to free Will Jimeno, and later, to free Will’s partner John McLoughlin. About the rescue, Scott says, “[It] helped me survive emotionally and personally. I helped someone get home to their families.” Scott retired in 2003 and is currently Mayor of Mineola, Long Island.
