The two men rescued from a flooded elevator in the Jane-Alliance Avenue neighbourhood consider them heroes but the two police officers who rescued them say they were just doing their jobs.

Constable Ryan Barnett, who along with Constable Josh McSweeney managed to free Klever Freire and Gabriel Otrin, says he believes any officer in that situation would have done the same thing.
Const. McSweeney says while it’s nice to be called a hero, it’s nice to help them out. 
Friere and Otrin kept their heads above water by standing on handrails inside the elevator as they frantically tried to get cellphone signal to call for help.
The officers say by the time they reached the elevator, the water had almost risen to the top and that the trapped men may have only had another 5 minutes or so before it likely would have been too late.
