The cops asked the children the last time they had eaten, and they couldn’t even remember…
A 24-year-old man in New Mexico was caught driving drunk by Deputies Roger Garcia and Sam Rodriquez, according to a report by ABC KOAT.
To the officers’ shock, there were also 3 children in his car, including a 2-month-old infantwho was not even buckled into her carseat. When the deputiesasked the children the last time they hadeaten, they couldn’t even remember.
Jumping into action for the scared and starving children, Garcia and Rodriquez went to buy McDonald’s for the 2 and 5-year-olds.
But it’s the great lengths they wentfor the baby girl that has just gone viral.
Garcia mixed up some baby formula with the aid of hisflashlight. Because he only had a cold water bottle, he held it up to the car heater to make sure it was safe and palatable for the baby.
He passed the bottle over to Rodriquez, who fed the infant as he swaddled her in a pink blanket he got from his church.The men even teamed up to change her dirty diaper.
Rodriguez doesn’t have children yet, but he couldn’t stop his natural paternal instincts from kicking in. When his wife saw the photos, she said, “Honey, it’s time to start a family.”
We couldn’t agree more!
We’re so proud of these policeman for stepping into the role offather figures when these children couldn’t rely on their own dad. This is the true definition of serving and protecting, especially those who cannot help themselves. Well done!
