Police officers are some of the bravest men and women in our country. They risk their lives every single day to make sure that they keep the citizens of their country safe. Officer Nick Struck of the Brighton Police Department in Colorado was on duty when something happened that he’ll never forget.
There was a single-car rollover crash that Struck had responded to. The officers found six passengers in the car, two adults and four children. All of the passengers had been ejected from the car and one of them died at the scene. The rest of the passengers were air-lifted and transported to nearby hospitals to have their injuries treated. The officers wanted to do what they could to keep the kids calm. Struck said told 9News, “When you hear that there’s children involved, I’ll tell you what, everyone that responds to that scene, you get that pit in your stomach. The first thing we do when we get on scene is we just try to, if we can comfort anybody, of course we’re going to go to the kids.”
Struck was emotional in his interview with 9News as he explained, “I have a 2-year-old daughter and she’s my first kid. So, of course, your first thought is that could be your little daughter.” He went on to say, “I’m not a medical person, but I know how to give a hug to somebody, and you better believe every one of those officers on scene would do the same thing.”
The man who died at the scene was the little girl’s father. So Struck did what any father would do- he sang to her. Grab the tissues, because the footage below is incredibly heartwarming.
