"I was really scared; I was crying. I was crying super bad. ... I would really call him my best friend and a hero," Phaelan told KXLY.

Awesome stuff that includes a handwritten letter, a coloring book, a police motorcycle toy and a police badge. Now, Phaelan is even considering a career as a police officer.

Ashby has a son of his own, who is very ill.

His son suffers from pediatric congestive heart failure.

Now, Phaelan's mother is trying to get support for the trooper who showed her son so much kindness.
