Video Of Officer Caring For Toddler Police Say Was Left Behind After Crash Goes Viral

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Video of a Los Angeles police officer comforting a toddler police say was left behind after a crash over the weekend has gone viral.

When LAPD Ofr. John Neal Cooke arrived on scene to the crash early Saturday morning, he thought it was just a typical hit-and-run: a vehicle had struck a fire hydrant that was spewing water.

“Witnesses tell us, ‘Hey, there was only one person involved and she went running down the street,’ ” he said.

But it turned out the crash was anything but typical when he said another officer checked the back seat and said, “you guys, there’s a baby in here.”

Police said the 2-year-old boy had been left by himself by his 27-year-old mother who crashed and then took off.

But video of how LAPD officers, including Cooke, calmed the scared child soon went viral.
