Sheriff's Deputy Comforts Baby After Horrific Accident, Praise Is Pouring In

On Tuesday, Sheriff's Deputy Ric Lindley arrived at the scene of a car crash in Leeds, Alabama. An ambulance, a tractor-trailer and three cars collided, leaving four people injured. A photo was taken of Lindley comforting a baby at the crash.

A fellow officer posted it online, and it has since gone viral receiving hundreds of messages praising the deputy. Lindley noticed the baby in the car seat and quickly got her out.

The picture has since been shared, on Facebook, over 14,000 times. Mary Ann Greenslade wrote: “Such an act of compassion. Thank you Deputy Lindley for being there for that sweet child. Prayers for all involved."

Lindley told WBRC: “She was kind of excited about all the noise and everything going on, which is understandable, but she became calm…and she stayed calm. She smiled. We can be hard sometimes, that's just the nature of the beast. But at other times, we're not machines, or computers, we have feelings.”
