Kansas police officer Andy Black is being called a hero for tenderly feeding this infant as her mom recovered from a seizure in a local mall. As paramedics helped the child’s mom onto a stretcher, Black, a grandfather of 14, tenderly finished the feeding the mom had been trying to start.

Bystander JIlli Nel captured this sweet photo of Black and the infant girl and posted it to Facebook, where it quickly went viral.

Black told BuzzFeed News that when he arrived to assist the woman, she had not fully recovered from her seizure and was trying to feed her squalling baby without much success. She handed the infant to Black who simply says, “I took the bottle, and I fed the baby.”

I love this story of an officer protecting and serving in such a sweet way. How about you?
