Jim Lail tried to save deputy's life

Wow, sounds like something out of a movie, but this is real court testimony on Monday about the 2001 murder of a Fresno, Calif., deputy: :

Helicopter pilot Jim Lail and slain deputy Erik Telen's mother were both crying as the pilot described coming under fire while trying to save Telen's life. Lail told jurors, "The kitchen, everything started falling off the shelves on top of us from gunfire. I kept trying to pull him but he was very big. I couldn't pull him." Lail says he shot back with one hand, as he tried to pull Telen's body with the other.
