An unidentified police officer helped Rachel Brindley to mow her lawn after finding her trying to do the chore while also carrying a baby with her.


Rachel took to Facebook to share the photograph of a police officer from the Madison County Sheriff’s Department pushing a lawn mower across her lawn.

In the caption to the post, she explained how she was initially scared by the arrival of the officer, but his intentions completely surprised her.

‘Y'all thought I was about to get in trouble or something. But this sweet sheriff [sic] stopped and insisted on mowing my yard for me!’ she wrote in her caption.


According to KCTV5, Rachel’s husband, Ryan, told them that his wife was looking after their four-month-old baby while cutting the grass of their front yard.

She was trying to help him out because he was busy on a project and was not being able to make time for mowing the lawn. So one fine day, Rachel thought that she would do it herself.


"He has been working hard on a work project and hasn't had time to cut it," Rachael told. "It was a nice day out and so I thought I'd help my husband out and cut it myself. I enjoy cutting the grass."

When the police cruiser drove by their house, Rachel was carrying the baby, who was attached to her through a front-facing baby carrier. The officer then stopped Rachel and took over the chore for her.


Ryan told the source that the officer’s deed was “small in nature,” but it was a “huge help” for his wife day, so his action meant a lot to them that day.

According to another report from ShareTap, the story of the generous police officer that Rachel posted on her Facebook account has been shared more than 17,000 times so far.
