LOS ANGELES - There was no question. The man standing before Rick Heltebrake on a rural mountain road was Christopher Dorner. Clad in camouflage from head to toe and wearing a bulletproof vest packed with ammunition, the most-wanted man in America over the last week was just a few feet away, having emerged from a grove of trees holding a large, assault-style rifle. As teams of officers who had sought the fugitive ex-Los Angeles police officer since last week were closing in, Dorner pointed the gun at Heltebrake and ordered him to get out of his truck.

At the height of Sandy's fury, with calls for help pouring in by the hundreds, they didn't think about heroics. First responders just did their jobs, one rescue after another.
