As summer temperatures soar in the south, these police officers weren’t about to let a WWII veteran soak in his own sweat all day.
The Fort Worth Police Department in Texas received a 911 call from a 95-year-old man distressed over his broken air conditioner. Though it wasn’t exactly considered an emergency, two boys in blue dropped by the senior’s house to check out the situation.
Officers William Margolis and Christopher Weir drove over to Julius Hatley’s house where the senior was sitting out in the shade of his porch in the early morning 90-degree heat.
Not only was Hatley’s air conditioner broken, but his central air conditioning was broken as well.
Heartbroken by Hatley’s sweltering situation, Margolis promised to return with a solution.
The officers then went to Home Depot and asked the employees which unit would be best for Hatley’s house. The store employees were so touched upon hearing about the veteran’s situation, however, that they decided to throw down $150 of their own money so they could split the cost of an air conditioner with Margolis.
