Police Officer Goes Above Call of Duty to Help Saddened Boy

David Taylor, a member of the police force in Crowley, Louisiana, patrolled the International Rice Festival over the weekend. There, he was brought a young boy who was distressed for losing track of his parents. Crowley said, "He was extremely upset ... I put him on my shoulders to see if he would be able to see his parents.”

It took about half an hour to eventually find the boy's mother, by that time the boy had calmed down and fell asleep. Images were taken of officer Taylor carrying the little boy. They have since been posted online and gone viral.

Taylor said, "What I was doing is nothing different from the rest of our law enforcement colleagues." Texas resident Betty Thomas said, “I understand that he helped the little boy for quite a while until he found the mother and that was just really great to see.”

Carolyn Senegal, who recently moved to Crowley from Lake Charles, stated, “I think it's awesome because we hear so much negative things about our police officers today so I'm happy to say that I've seen something that's a positive image.”
