Angel Cordero on rescuing Amanda Berry: "I kicked the door at the bottom .... and that's when Amanda ran out"

As Ariel Castro was charged today with three counts of rape and four counts of kidnapping and two of his captives returned to their families, "Piers Morgan Live" invited unsung hero Angel Cordero to the program to describe his interaction with Amanda Berry Monday afternoon as the first on the scene.

Cordero's niece, Ashley Garcia, joined Piers Morgan to help translate.

"She had told me that [she] had been kidnapped for ten years," Garcia recounted for Cordero. "So I kicked the door at the bottom ... and that's when Amanda ran out of the house."

Cordero cleared up misconceptions that Charles Ramsey was the first to rescue Amanda:

"The first one that talked to Amanda was me, and she told me what was going on and that there was two other women in the house."

Morgan noted, "there were a few heroes that day that helped Amanda get out. But it certainly would appear that you, Angel, were the one who physically got her through that door, and for that we are all extremely grateful."

Watch the clip, and listen to the rest of Cordero's interview, as the neighbor of the suspect further explains his involvement in saving Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight.

      If you think about it, there are Hispanics who can understand English but are barely able to speak it. Basic English is what they can communicate; it won't be fluent, but understandable.

      If they had given him an ear piece he may have had the chance to understand the questions but they only gave an ear piece to his niece. So I'm sure he could have understood Berry for the rescue.

      Him saving Berry makes more sense than Mr. McDonalds Ramsey being serious and focused enough to have done so.

      There are plenty of people who can understand a language but are unable to fluently speak it.

      As for the interview, I don't think Angel can hear Piers Morgan. It seems like the niece is translating from a ear piece.

        "Hispanic neighborhood"? She wasn't allowed to see the neighborhood. So what does that have to do with anything? She wasn't at the barbecues salsa dancing with Charles Ramsey. She could have learned Spanish from Gina De Jesus. They obviously spent a lot of time together. I doubt these poor women learned anything from that monster.

    Some one is lying between Angel and Charles. Both claim to have kicked the door in. Both claim that Amanda spoke directly to them.

    Angel says that Amanda told him that 2 other girls were in the house. Charles says she told the police that 2 other girls were in there.

    Odd that Angels is saying however that he conversed extensively back and forth with Amanda per the translator. Yet Angel cant speak English.. Hmm...

    I think it will all come out if the Investigators ask Amanda how this actually happened.

      I don't think Angel is lying but that's just my opinion. Remember the kidnapper was Hispanic so there might be a chance them girls learned some Spanish after ten years. Ramsey says it in the interview "we kicked the door!" but Amanda will clarify this I'm sure because after all someone saved her.

        Angel does say 'he kicked the door in" which conflicts with Charles saying we tried to kick the door in one interview and saying he (Charles) kicked the door in another interview i saw.

        Angel says he go Amanda out of the house and told her to make the phone call from his house. Charles says that he told Amanda to go accross the street to make the phone call. Charles also says that Amanda leaped into his arms, which conflicts a bit with Angels saying he got her and the child out and told her come to his home to make the phone call.

        I agree with you that Amanda would have had to know some Spanish if we are to believe Angel. As he appears to not speak English and hes statements per the translator are that he conversed with Amanda extensively.

        So we need Amanda's input on these accounts.

        Another thing that puzzled me is the 911 phone account by Charles. He says there is a girl that came out of the house and she says her name is Leslie Berry (or some *hit). However he mentions in one interview account that said in the 911 interview that he had Amanda Berry next to him. It that account he appeared to be more assured of her name.

        So again I would like to get Amanda's account of this as there are some inconsistencies here of who did what.

        Just because you can't speak fluent english, doesn't attest to how well you understand it. There is no claim of eloquent conversation between him and Amanda. I believe he know enough english to understand danger especially with the contextual body language of Amanda showing signs of distress. I believe Angel merely because Amanda used his phone. If Angel couldn't understand, then Charles would of been the only facilitator for Amanda. Instead, I believe there was sufficient communications between Amanda and Angel before Charles arrived for Amanda to commit to leaning on Angel for further help.

        WHY DOES THIS MATTER? Did this man do it for the recognition and honor, or to help some girls? Great, let's focus on who the "hero" is instead of the actual story here. You do know there've been many a heroic deed where the "hero" walked aay, didn't want the recognition. I think it's crappy when stuff like this comes out because it makes it seem like if you won't get fame out of it, you wont' do it.

      Actually, when Ramsey was interviewed and asked about how things happened, he said "WE can't get in that way...So we kicked the bottom." when describing the scene. He just didn't name the "we." I don't know if Angel's account of him being alone stands up.

        I just saw an interview on Angel and the neighbor from where Amanda made the call said that it was Angel who busted the door. One of the Cleveland police officers even brought angel to the news anchor to let them know it was angel who got her out. I just want the real story to be told because the right people should be rewarded and praised for their bravery. I know what really matters is that the girls are safe but it was someone who saved them from the devil.

    I hope CNN and the rest of the media will tell the truth about Angel Cordero who was the one who kicked the door in and rescued Amanda Berry and her child. When we listen to Charles Ramsey, something tells me he is too 'media savvy'. No doubt he must have helped, but the real heroes are Angel Cordero and Wintel Tejeda. Why can't the media give them their due?

    Angel Cordero doesn't seem to speak a lick of English, so he's lost all credibility with me. He comes off as looney-tunes with visions of grandeur, and trying to ride someone else's coat-tails. It sounds very ridiculous that Angel is having this in depth conversation with Amanda Berry in Spanish. Besides, why would Amanda Berry run to Charles Ramsay? Because she recognized the one that helped her, not this guy! And one more thing, they're not going to get their due if they don't speak English, talk barely above a whisper, and possibly lack personality. That's common sense. Even if the guy spoke the worst English but appeared confident; he would make for a good interview. So, Angel can take himself back across the street and seethe in anger.

      After viewing that video Im convinced that Angel can speak English. That was the only missing link to him stating that he communicated with Amanda.

      The important thing of course is that the girls are free and safe. In assessing the various interviews Im convinced that both Charles and Angel where part of the rescue. It would have been great if Angel got more recognition initially. I will say the reason that didnt happen is a bit all of our faults.

      We like what really sells.
      We like the dramtic interview like that of Charles.
      And I will say we will 1st look at whos English comes accross better in an interview.

      Angel was the odd man out in each of those categories unfortunately. However as I said from the video Im convinced that he does speak enough English to have communicated with Amanda. It seems in situations like this the quiet humble guy always gets left out. As Charles said in one of his interviews about Ariel Castro. Angel fits the mole of the just the average guy that isnt doing anything exciting. Well not till today, when Angel was definitely part of this rescue if 3 girls missing for a decade. He deserves part credit.

      You are a hero as well Angel.

    It doesn't matter if you really want to be fair and unbais listen to Mr. Ramsey over and over again use the word "WE"...that doesn't seem like a man that is acting like he is the only hero. It's not his fault that Angel doesn't speak English well enough to do an interview right after the incident. And if all of these other people were around and on the porch....couldn't any of them intrepret what Angel was saying for him at that time? The point of the matter is they are Free!!!! The last thing that we should be concentrating on is who did what and when. No reward(money) is better than the reward that will come when each of these men come face to face with God...and he says Well done my good and faithful servant....that is worth more than gold.

    His niece did not do a good job of translating. His comments should be transcribed and accurately translated into English by someone more fluent in both languages. You would find that what his niece said is very different from Cordero's statement.
    And if his statement is true, then why is Ramsey receiving all the accollades? Please be fair and acknowledge/reward the Real hero or heroes.
    For those inferring to rewards in heaven, how about honesty and justice in the here and now. Why should a humble man be overlooked while Charles relishes the limelight and/or reward? Humble does not mean stupid. And just maybe a reward could change his or their lives. Slick people are quick to say "look at me!" Let's not perpetuate the unfairness by making light of what Cordero did.

    I would like to say that I have known Angel for some years now and he is neither a liar nor looking for attention.

    He is a very humble guy and if he says he was there, I have absolutely no doubt that he was.

    I hope he is given his recognition and is looked at as another hero, who did what was right when the moment called for it.

    Please pray for the victims and families and everyone else involved in this horrific ordeal.

      he's not an attention seeker we are the ones that made him "famous" after that 911 call he's been the main one in interviews because of all the views and how his call was placed .. he said multiple times, go back and check, that "we helped break the door down" not himself alone .. people become so stupid after all the stories .. the 911 call was different, hell it was even funny but that's why he has gotten all the recognition the news channels asks for his interviews, Charles Ramsey doesn't call them ! I believe Angel helped too .. so he too should get recognition but he isn't that "exciting" for the media which isn't Charles' fault .

    Amanda's (probably half) sister surname is "Serrano", so it's possible she can speak Spanish, and living in a neighbourhood with so many Hispanic people as it seems, + 10 years of her life listening Spanish quite often havin' those 3 monsters at "home"... well, maybe is her the one that can speak the language of the other.

    Ramsey is a fake hero. Ramsey stole the story of true hero Angel Cordero, a dominican immigrant, the man who helped Amanda Berry, the man who broke the door and save Amanda. Ramsey did nothing except quickly realized was the real situation because Cordero barely speak english and Ramsey simply stole the story to the media.
    Ramsey is hilarious, OK, but he's liyng. Americans can't see the truth 'cause the anglo media don't do his work properly.
    WEWSTV did not his work because the journalist that supposedly speak spanish really she do not know. You are appaluding a fake hero who was not the first, nor the second, nor the third to help Amanda. But he was clever because the other were two women and the real hero Angel Cordero, who witnessed the scene and really freed Amanda all them spanish immigrants. The last in America. But the last deserves to be the first. Angel Cordero is shy but brave and he is the real hero who deserves your help and recognition.

    McDonald is sponsoring Ramsey. OK, go Burger King, support the true hero. He was like an Angel. And he also is Cordero ('lumb' in english you got it?) I'm giving the job done. Please help the truth. Support Angel Cordero.

        We are talking about Charles Ramsey he is the Tania Head of Cleveland. Sure that you remember to this fake heroin of the 9/11. She have been abusing of the good faith of victims and the whole american media and people for years.
        The lines about McDonald and Burger King It is only irony and we're sure that most people have grasped that we were just ironizing about McDonald and his marketing campaign using this new Tania Head version.
        Please, see the WEWSTV interview with Angel Cordero at the day and at the place of facts in our report and also it the Piers Morgan interview and maybe you understand what is the real question for us. In the report you can see that we never forgot the real meaning of the terrible tragedy. Here:
        That's why we consider also terrible that that corporation could be trying to do business with these tortured women.
        Anyway, our apologizes if we had offended you with our precedent comment.

    The guy can't speak English, but can give Amanda instructions on what to do to help her? BS. Plus, Charles Ramsey never claimed to be the "hero". The media tried to make him the "hero".

      Exactly. He only can speak english FLUENTLY. He is no mute. Charles Ramsey said he was the man who listened Amanda cries and broke the door. This is the same Tania Head does. Most of audience like a funny and relatively handsome american man speaking good english. And people like you what are you doing is to punish the guy who do not speak english because he lives and work in a spanish neighbor. But really who were obligated to speak spanish fluently were the journalist of the local chain WEWSTV, who have to cover the news in a city with a great spanish community. Could it be that this contempt to the problems of people who do not speak English fluently is the explanation for the strange behavior of the Cleveland Police Department and the FBI on this case?

    He speaks little english. I watched an interview in english. The problem is that he is not good enough to be understood therefore they use an interpreter.

      The real problem are the journalists who do not speak spanish fluently in a city with a big nuclei of hispanic people. That's why the spanish community is invisible for anglo media. With the exception of CNN and 'Piers Morgan' work, thanks to whom we can be talking about this. And our independent site who was the first to alert about the new fake american hero.

    I believe Charles' version for the simple reason that those young ladies had been held captive by a hispanic male for 10 years and I can't see them being receptive to running to another hispanic person. It would be the same if the captors were african american, they more than likely would not be very trusting of another african american man.

      Pretty sure, Lynett. Sure Amanda would reject to be helped by another hispanic man. Sure she preferred to still being tortured the time necessary until one real american hero from an acceptable ethnical origin, speaking good english and relatively handsome goes there to save her. Black included. But no hispanic. No, sir. You smart.

    You guys all know the Gina DeJesus is Hispanic right? She is Puerto Rican and her home is less than two blocks from where I grew up in the westside of Cleveland.

    My family and I came to Cleveland in 1994 and at that time, the Hispanic community was a lot smaller and closer. That's why all of the older, 30 years , hispanics in Cleveland seem to "know" each other. By this I mean that we all went to the same dances, clubs, parades and so forth.

    Saying that the girls would not run towards a Hispanic rescuer, because the kidnapper was Hispanic is totally completely ignorant.

    Like I said before, Angel is a humble person and I would say a bit gullible. I don't think he is coming forward for any other reason than to tell the truth of what happened. Now I'm not sure if there is any type of monetary compensation, but if there is, I'm sure the right people will be given their share.

    Hope the best for the girls and families and nothing but the worst for Ariel Castro.

    I believe they both played a part in helping. Ramsey stated, "the Dominican went running back across the street, but also he told Amanda to go across the street and call 911." Telling her to go across the stree makes no sense to me. The truth will come out when Amanda talks to the media, until then we can only speculate. Please keep it civil, there is enough division in this country and our city!
