NJ Troopers Buy 15 Pizzas For Travellers Stranded At Closed Airport

Bad weather doesn't have to be that bad when you have two generous state troopers on hand.

Several people were stranded at the Atlantic City International Airport Sunday night, when two New Jersey state troopers ordered and personally paid for 15 pizzas to hold them over.

One of the stranded passengers, Samantha Metallo, took to Facebook to document the kind gesture of the state troopers. Metallo also mentioned in the post that the only thing the airport offered to the passengers was a cookie.

The New Jersey State Trooper Fraternal Association's president, Chris Burgos, confirmed to NBC News that two of his troopers did buy the pizzas for stranded fliers and that the Facebook posting shows exactly what the troopers did that night.
