A couple from Greenbelt, Maryland were driving home when they came across a strange sight, in the middle of the road in pouring rain was standing a policewoman who was not moving but looked surprisingly happy and seemed to be smiling. Carolyn B.R Hammett and her husband was confused at first but as they got closer however they realized that she was standing over something.
A turtle had decided to fall asleep in the middle of the road and the policewoman decided to guard her, and the chances of the turtle getting run over were really high.
Carolyn said that she couldn’t believe her eyes as not many people would do what the woman was doing, especially not in such atmospheric conditions for sure. She was serving and protecting in every sense of the word.
Carolyn and her husband ran home to take two shovels, and they came back to lift the turtle safely out of the road. The officer was thankful to the couple and the couple described her as vibrant and full of life, the couple claimed that the officer was an inspiration to them, and they believe that every officer should show the same attitude.
