GOOD NEWS Boy Gets Amazing Surprise From Troopers After No One Shows at Birthday
A boy who was heartbroken after no one showed up to his birthday party was cheered up when Arkansas State Troopers came to celebrate.
10-year-old Toxey Ahrabli's mother had sent invitations to 21 of his classmates for the party earlier this month in Hot Springs Village.
She told ABC News that a few parents said their child would attend, but on the day of the event they were all no-shows.
Some state troopers noticed her post on Facebook, and agreed the boy deserved a surprise party.
So two days later, a group of them came, bringing cake, gifts and their K-9 named Rhino.
They had a full on party, including a game of basketball, ride in their patrol cars, and fun with the dog.
The day was an emotional one for Toxey.
“I cried a little bit because they did that for me. If I am remembering right, this is the only birthday that I have had with people coming,” he said.
His mother, Angela Andrews, expressed her thanks to the troopers on Facebook, "from the bottom of my heart."
"I will never be able to repay the kindness you showed my family today!! Come on friends, let's make these guys famous! They deserve to be recognized for the wonderful people they are!"
