A mobility-challenged woman’s electric scooter broke down at a busy intersection in San Pablo on Monday night — and almost a mile away from home.
Everything else about this story will warm your heart.
San Pablo police Officer Brett Bennett found the woman on the cold, dark night, police said. Bennett gave the woman his jacket to keep warm and called City Maintenance Worker Alex Gregg to help get the scooter back to her home.
Even better: Gregg arrived and repaired the scooter enough so it could be driven back home, police said.
“Officer Bennett walked alongside the woman all the way home to make sure she got there safely,” police said.
He didn’t know it at the time, but a colleague snapped some photos of them, which was shared on social media.
“Officer Brett Bennett and Maintenance Worker Alex Gregg truly went above and beyond to help out a member of our Community in need,” police said, adding. “We are very proud to have them as a part of our organization!”
