A Toronto Police officer was caught in an act of kindness as he tied an elderly man’s shoelaces in a photo that has gone viral on Twitter.
Mark Borsboom, a paid duty officer, was on duty near The Rogers Centre. At around 4:30 p.m in the afternoon, he came across the elderly gentleman, walking with a cane near Bremner Boulevard and Lower Simcoe Street. “He wanted to prevent him from tripping on his lace,” Toronto Police Service media officer Wendy Drummond said.
Borsboom offered to help the man, stooping to tie his laces for him. The moment was captured and quickly spread around social media. It was eventually retweeted by the Toronto Police’s official Twitter feed.
