Photo Showing a Police Officer Comforting a Child Goes Viral

Earlier this week, Baton Rouge Sergeant Duke Staples responded to a car accident only to find a 4-year-old girl wandering around the scene with no shoes on, walking on broken glass scattered throughout the road. A photo was taken of Sergeant carrying and comforting the girl, that went viral. According to the Baton Rouge Police Department, the girl’s mother and sister were both injured in the crash and were being stabilized when Staples discovered the girl.

After the photo was shared by many, the police department wrote on their Facebook page “Sgt. Staples took the 4 year old under his care and comforted her until EMS was able to stabilize the sister and prepare her for transport to the hospital. A family member later arrived to take care of this precious angel while her mother and sister were transported to the hospital for treatment.”

The post also read “We want to take this opportunity to recognize Sergeant Duke Staples for his service and kindness to a little girl who had just experienced a tragic incident." Commenter Monique Bennett Sanders wrote “He took his badge off and went into father mode. How sweet of you, his first impression will be the last impression he had on this Lil angel. God bless you Sgt. Staples.”
