The West Virginia State Police Troopers made a heartbreaking discovery one Tuesday afternoon. It was 5p.m., and they had just made an arrest for an alleged DUI one mile from their headquarters. In the back seat of the car was a 1-year-old baby. The little boy had been sick and was covered in his own vomit. His diaper was dirty, and he was obviously upset.
They brought the child back to their headquarters to await Child Protective Services, but in the meantime, Senior Trooper D.C. Graham decided to step in.
“As a father myself, I couldn’t let it sit in its own urine and feces and vomit,” said Senior Trooper D.C. Graham.
Graham acted on instinct and drew up a nice, warm, soapy bath in their kitchen sink. He washed the baby clean with a soft towel. Being cleaned and cared for, the baby began to smile and laugh with the troopers who were glad to help in any way that they could.
After his bath, he began to get drowsy. Graham could tell that what this little baby needed most was a good cuddle and a long nap, so he laid back in his chair with the baby on his chest and held him until he nodded off.CPS showed up shortly after and straightened everything out. The little baby was taken to a legal guardian and is being closely cared for by CPS.
