Arriving at the scene, police officer Nick Strack found the youngest member of the family, 2-year-old Serena, unharmed. She came out unscathed. However, she was alone, in a stupor, shocked and wet with gasoline.
The paramedic was the first to find Serena and hand her over to Officer Struck. When he saw the little girl, he saw the shock written on her face.
Immediately, he transitions from cop to parent and knows it’s up to him to calm Serena down and assure her that everything will be okay.
As a father, Officer Struck encounters too many situations where he steps in to comfort and comfort his daughter. This was his chance to work his magic again. He remembered how he sang the popular song “Little Stars Twinkle” to his daughter, and sang the song to young Serena again.
She seemed to have forgotten the tragic events and slowly eased her tension.
While some don’t know what to do with a traumatized child, Agent Strack knew how to treat her with as much kindness as a father and protect her. The witness must have been surprised by the human actions of the officer and photographed.
In such a dark time, a police officer has the heart to harbor an innocent victim of circumstance.
Once the image of the stricken officer holding Serena found its way to social media platforms, people were bound to share the officer’s merciful actions. It spread quickly.
Frappé went so far from his job description to comfort a kid who may have had no idea what was going on.
