The two kind Eindhoven police officers responded to a call last week where a mother of five was suffering from extremely low blood pressure. When she was rushed to the hospital, the officers realized the children were left alone.

The heartwarming photo, posted to the Eindhoven Police Facebook page, is written in Danish but lucky for us, Facebook has translated the post to our native tongue:

The other side of police work
"Last week our colleagues got an alert in Woensel-Noord. An ambulance had to attend to a woman who was suffering from a hypo, her blood sugar was way too low. The woman was driven to the hospital for monitoring but there were five young children in the home. Because the policemen had some time to wait before they could hand the kids over to someone and the kids hadn't eaten yet, the officers made them something to eat. Our colleagues made them egg sandwiches and some fruit, and they made sure to do all the dishes afterwards."



The sweet officers waited for another adult guardian to arrive, cooked up some egg sandwiches for the five little ones and kept them calm.

Day made!
