Florida – A Florida man pulled from a burning home and resuscitated by police officers was later charged with attempted murder and arson.

Robert Merritt, a 49-year-old dispatcher with the Orange County Sheriff’s Office, was saved by officers performing a well-being check at his Orlando home at 5 a.m. Thursday, The Orlando Sentinel reported.
