A woman from Ohio was in New York City, getting treatment for her sick son when her rental car was towed. She was apparently parked too close to a fire hydrant. A police officer heard her story and stepped up to help the mother.
Charnee Merritt and her 8-year-old son Isreal were staying at the Ronald McDonald House, and thought her car was stolen when she couldn’t find it. When she called 911, Officer P.J. Conley answered the phone. When he found out the car was towed, he tried to make some phone calls to get the car out for her with no avail.
That’s when the officer decided to pay it himself.
Merritt said, “He said, ‘You know what I am going to come help you. I am going to pay the $185 to get your car out of towing and I said, ‘thank you, thank you.’”
Officer Conley also paid for Merritt’s cab ride to pick up her car. WATCH the heartwarming story above.
