Police officers around the country make the news every week for some pretty awful things. Here, though, is a cop in Chesterfield County, Va. doing a wonderfully right thing when he didn’t know or particularly care that anyone was watching.
The officer, Michael Green, can be seen in the video below picking up some kids – a couple at a time – from a school bus and carrying them over rushing flood waters to the safety of other adults.
As you can see from the vantage point (and the vertical-phone filming choice), a driver filmed the event in an impromptu fashion.
Local CBS affiliate WTVR placed the raw footage on its YouTube feed.
