They were having a terrible time in more ways than one: A Michigan family, grieving because they had recently buried one of their three children, were on their way to pawn their belongings so that they could afford their next tank of gas when their car suddenly broke down. It was a very unlucky moment--but it turns out they were lucky that it broke down where it did.
A police officer working on the same road where Westley White and his family were stranded jumped in to help them in a way the family of four never saw coming.
“We were stranded and we couldn’t call anyone,” said White told WOOD-TV.
The officer, deputy Scott Dyke, 53, helped them by bringing them to a nearby gas station--and then did something even more selfless.
