Cincinnati police officers are winning praise for the way in which they helped a lost little boy.
Officers said they found the three-year-old wandering the city streets around 2:30 a.m. and in desperate need of clothes.
Officer Jamie Landrum went to Walgreens to buy the boy fresh diapers and clothes, including new shoes and a winter coat.
Meanwhile, Officer Will Nastold got down on the floor with the boy to try to help him fall asleep.
A photo of that posted by the CPD to Facebook went viral, and the CPD also recognized Officers Landrum and Nastold on Twitter.
