A Georgia police officer is being recognized after helping a woman whose car ran out of fuel get to a gas station. According to the Woodstock Police Department, Officer B. Keane used his patrol car to push the stranded driver before physically pushing the vehicle into the station.
The driver’s daughter later tagged the department in a Facebook post and thanked the officer for his actions. She said that her mother ran out of gas while pulling into a Sam’s Club parking lot in Woodstock. Keane allowed her mom to wait in her position until her daughter brought gas, but she didn’t bring enough to start the car. That’s when the officer used his patrol vehicle to push the car from behind to the nearest gas station.
“He graciously volunteered to push her car with his patrol car into the gas station. When it didn’t make it all the way he got out of his car and physically pushed it the rest of the way. He acted like it was no big deal. However, to us it was a big deal. He chose to be kind and help when he didn’t have to. So thank you Woodstock PD for having such amazing officers!” the daughter wrote.
She hadn’t known the officer’s name, but the department identified Keane and praised him in a post sharing the story. “Thank you Officer B. Keane, for going above and beyond! We think he’s pretty amazing too!”
