It was in the middle of summer. The heat was an unbearable 97 degrees and only getting hotter. Around mid-day, the temperatures could reach as high as 105 degrees if the conditions were right, and unfortunately on this day, they were. That’s when one man found himself in an impossible situation.
He was traveling to visit his mother with his 1-year-old son in the backseat when his truck broke down on a two-lane highway with no help in site. An officer pulled up, and the following story blew everyone away…
These are the stories that don’t make the news. No one was shot, no one was injured, and social injustice wasn’t a deciding factor in the outcome of the story.
