An Ohio police officer has gone viral on Facebook for an act of charity towards a postpartum mother and child, thanks to bodycam footage.

Corporal Hunter Willoughby responded to a “frantic phone call” according to a Facebook post from the Miami Township Police Department.

According to the Facebook post, the call was from a “post-partum mother who advised she was unable to feed her one week old infant. Cpl Willoughby went into action and alerted employees at Meijer & they helped (the store was closed at the time).”
