COMMERCE, GA (WTVM) – A Georgia police officer is shown helping to console a child following an accident on a busy roadway last week.

The photo, taken by Commerce, GA Police Department Sgt. Kay Denton, shows a fellow officer comforting an injured child following an accident on I-85 on July 30.

In her post, Denton said she wanted to share the post showing a good police officer simply doing his job to help those in need.

The officer working to console the child, identified as Corporal Chris Holly, told Atlanta news station WAGA that just wanted to help the child get his mind off the traumatizing accident and help him any way he could.

"And we talked about school and his favorite video games and this and that," Holly told WAGA. "I asked him how old he was and he told me it was his birthday. So, then I sang 'Happy Birthday' to him."

Her post says:

With all the 'anti-police' propaganda that is seen in the media, all of the 'bad cop' stories, and stories of 'racial' issues, I wanted to share THIS.

The post has been shared more than 4,000 times on Facebook, with many people asking for the continued support of law enforcement.
