A Dallas police officer is being lauded for bringing comfort to a 3-month-old baby. The officer cared for the child just moments after it was pulled out alive from an overturned vehicle.
Officer Donald Boice was caught in pictures cradling the infant by a Fox 4 News photographer. The photos have now been shared by the police in the area.

“That Could Be My Child Too”
“That could be my child, too,” Boice said. “And I’d want someone treating my child the same way.”
Dallas police reported that a Chevy Trailblazer driven by a family from Michigan was traveling at a high speed early Sunday. It hit an object in a Downtown Dallas construction zone, causing the vehicle to flip. Inside the Trailblazer were three children, ages 5, 2 and 3-months old, and their parents.
The father suffered a fractured arm and a head injury, but everyone else in the car, including the 3-month-old child, Jackson, seemed to be OK, according to Fox 4 News.
“The best I can do is just kind of keep him, bounce him, sing to him the same songs that I sang to my kids when they were that age,” Boice said.
The images show a compassionate side of the law that the pubic does not often get to see.
