Bernice Daniels noticed two children struggling to carry their laundry to a laundromat in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, but she wasn’t the only one.
“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,” she told CBS Philly.
Officer Sammy Brinson stopped to help the children.
“He told the kids to go ahead and walk, and he is going to drive the clothes to the laundromat,” Daniels said. She and her daughter recorded the incident and posted it to Facebook on Wednesday. The video (below) has since gone viral.
“All cops are not mean and nasty. That was so nice,” Daniels said.
“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 she won’t forget what happened.
“The officer was really helpful to them he cared about those children that were walking down the street with all those clothes.”
