SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- The San Diego city council will consider a special way to thank the police officer who rescued two girls near sunset cliffs.

A city councilmember wants to make August sixth, officer Jonathan Wiese day.

Officer Wiese jumped into the water off sunset cliffs to save two little girls after their father drove off the cliffs last month. Wiese said his goal once he saw the truck was to get down to the family and get them all to safety.
