Caught on Tape: Two Cops Push a Wheelchair-Bound Veteran all the way Home.

A Vietnam veteran injured in the line of duty whose motorized scooter broke down on a sidewalk in San Diego on Sunday was stranded a ways from home and unsure what to do next when two cops came to help.

The police officers, Eric Cooper and Milo Shields, spotted 67-year-old Gil Larocque waving for help. And when they couldn’t get the scooter started, they decided to push Larocque all the way home, about one mile away.

“He [asked] the other officer, ‘Are you up for a walk?’” Larocque told Fox San Diego. “The other officer said, ‘Yeah.’ They gave me a push all the way home. If it weren’t for them, I don’t know what I would have done.”
