In Prattville, Alabama, the local community there, along with local law enforcement is being praised for helping a family that had gotten in a sticky situation. Erica Melton was driving with her quadriplegic husband Douglas, when their van suddenly broke down in busy intersection. Melton flagged down a traffic enforcer for help, but she didn’t expect the people all around her to help out with their situation.
“The officers not only pushed our van out of traffic but made sure we were ok,” wrote Melton on social media, “Officer Hope stayed with us went and got water other Good Samaritans stopped with water took me to get lunch and we were also blessed us with other gifts. We are truly blessed to have such good people among us to come to our aid when we are in need. This showed me unity in our community and we need more of it.”
“I want to give a special thanks to the first responding officer, Officer Hope, the gentleman that was so giving and encouraging from his church, the technician from Brewbaker motor Hope the service manager at Brewbaker, the tow truck driver, the young lady that stopped with water, Angie the van driver that picked us up and transported us home, and most of all Thank you God for allowing your people to accommodate and demonstrate what we all should be.”
When Sgt. Hope was asked about his act of kindness and service, he humbly said that he was just doing his job.
