With winter and this blasted cold refusing to end anywhere, warm stories are welcome wherever they occur.
This one happened in Richmond.
A photo of Richmond Police Officer Jordan Clark helping a man whose wheelchair battery died has gone viral and is earning the officer praise on social media, WTVR reports.
“These are the stories that should be on the evening news!” Eric Vincent Williams posted on Facebook.
“Wow. Now that’s an officer doing a good job. He has a heart!” Sandra Pleasants added.
Here’s the story behind the photo, according to Richmond Police as reported by WTVR.
“Officer Clark responded and pushed the man for three blocks to 25th and Broad streets, where he had coordinated with GRTC to get the man picked up,” Richmond Police posted on Facebook. “He then helped the man get on the bus and then followed the bus to the man’s home near 21st and Q streets.”
With the man close but not quite home, the officer decided his deed was not quite done. Clark got out of his car and pushed the man another two blocks. When they arrived at the man’s home, police said Clark helped the man safely get inside.
“What an incredibly kind thing for him to do,” police posted about Officer Clark’s action.
