When a mother who had purportedly been drinking caused an accident, she could not face the consequences. The front of her white vehicle was severely damaged, and the collision caused liters of water to gush from a damaged fire hydrant.

Fearing that she would be arrested, the woman who was later identified as Elizabeth Robles ran from the scene on foot and hid away at home. However, she forgot one important thing behind in the car—her two-year-old son.

POLICE OFFICER SAVED THE DAY

The 27-year-old mother didn't display much care for her infant and chose to abandon him at the crash scene. Fortunately, a kind-hearted police officer arrived and saved the day.

LAPD officer John Neal Cooke was stunned when he discovered a child in the backseat of the car. Robles' son was crying and afraid.

THE MOM'S "MONSTROUS" ACTIONS

Cooke said the mother did a "monstrous thing" when prioritizing her well-being above her child's. Robles was later taken into custody after police found her at home.

The little boy was placed in the care of other family members. Officer Cooke stated that things could have been much worse. He added: "We were right there at the right time."

THE BABY NEEDED COMFORTING

Cooke went above and beyond to show the little one some love as he dealt with the shock of the accident. In a video, he embraces the child and offers him his bottle.

The baby reached out for the officer, and he got the comfort he had been looking for all evening. The events were traumatizing for the infant, but Cooke did his best to provide him with much-needed care.

THE ONLINE REACTION

Netizens applauded the officer. A commenter stated: "That cop is more of a mother than the "real" one." Another added:

"This officer is a real man to be admired."

Many also condemned the mother's actions, and one user wrote: "This woman is a disgrace." A netizen also stated: "This is disgusting. It's horrible to know that people would leave their child in a crashed car. I hope this little guy is the best."

While the police officer was simply doing what the job required of him, his attention to detail and kindness did not go unnoticed. His small act made all the difference and proved that a little bit of love can go a long way.
