Neighbor Sees Police Officer Battling to Push Senior’s Broken Electric Wheelchair Uphill… But what he did was miracle…

Even though it was searingly hot outside, this dedicated police officer continued to protect, serve, and advocate for his community whenever it was necessary to do so. He is receiving praise for his efforts.

Officer Tyson Nichols from the Rock Island Police Department was photographed by a passing pedestrian in Rock Island, Illinois while he was helping an elderly citizen who was confined to a malfunctioning electronic wheelchair climb a steep incline.

After that, the anonymous photographer uploaded the picture to the police department’s Facebook page with the following caption: “Just wanted to give respect to the department and this officer for displaying true concern and care for the community.”

Nichols later disclosed the information that the elderly woman was on her way to a doctor’s appointment when she got on the wrong bus, became stranded, and her wheelchair broke down.

The kind-hearted officer called Metro Bus and inquired about the possibility of the company assisting in transporting the woman to her appointment in a secure manner.

After that, he took care of the elderly woman by pushing her wheelchair to a shady area further up 31st Street and ensuring that she received the appropriate care before leaving.

Despite the fact that Nichols was unaware that he was being covertly photographed, he later expressed his delight at learning that a member of the community recognized the selfless effort that he was carrying out.

Nichols told WQAD that as a police officer, “it sort of comes easily with the territory.” He explained that as a police officer, “you naturally, instinctively do things that you’re supposed to be doing.”
