Police Officer Stops to Help Children Carry Heavy Load

In Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Bernice Daniels took note of two children struggling to carry what looked like a heavy hamper of laundry to a laundromat. She told CBS Philly, “It was heavy, they were actually carrying it, it’s not like they had a push cart. It’s not like they had their laundry inside of bags, it was inside of a hamper." Then, she noticed Officer Sammy Brinson stop to help them. Daniels said “He told the kids to go ahead and walk, and he is going to drive the clothes to the laundromat."

She and her daughter recorded the incident and posted it to Facebook on Wednesday. The video (below) has since gone viral. Daniels added “All cops are not mean and nasty. That was so nice. He did something that I wanted to do. I wanted to help those kids, but I’m thankful that he did it, because I’m a stranger. I’m a stranger so if I would’ve walked up to the children, they probably would’ve ran and left their laundry there.” A police spokesperson told Fox 29 that it’s all in a day’s work for police officers. Daniels’ nine-year-old daughter, Breyannah Daniels, said “The officer was really helpful to them he cared about those children that were walking down the street with all those clothes.”
