- Darryl Robinson was called to attend to a stranded boy
- The boy's parent was incarcerated and no one had picked him up from school
- Robinson took him to McDonald's to celebrate his birthday until his family was found
A police officer in Wisconsin, US has won praise for showing a stranded little boy kindness after his parent failed to pick him from school.
Darryl Robinson was called to check on the boy, whose name has been withheld, who had been waiting outside his primary school on October 23.
He soon realized that the boy's single parent had been incarcerated and the school had no other family contacts.
He alerted his station and as he spoke to the boy while waiting, he learned that it was his birthday.
Robinson then treated the boy to a meal at McDonald's to celebrate his birthday. In addition, he took him for a ride in his police car.
The boy's family was eventually located and Robinson safely dropped him off. In a Facebook post, the Green Bay Police Department praised his kind efforts.
The Department wrote: “Thank you to Officer Robinson for taking some extra time to celebrate the child’s birthday; we are so proud to have him part of the GBPD team!” The boy is sure to remember him too!
