DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. – When Brookhaven police officers passed a home while on patrol, they saw an elderly woman mowing her lawn. When they returned several hours later and saw her still at it, they decided to do something to help.
According to Brookhaven police, after stopping to talk to the woman, officers learned her late husband took great pride in their lawn.
Since his passing, she has tried to keep it up, but has a difficult time doing it herself.
Officer C. McCoy, with the Brookhaven Police Department, volunteered to help her by finishing the task himself. He wanted to give her a break, he said.
