On the 2nd July, this precious 4 year old girl and her family were victims of a serious crash that occurred in the 9200 block of Airline Highway.
The mother and the girls 12 year old sister suffered injuries in the crash. Sergeant Duke Staples arrived on scene and noticed the little girl had lost her shoes and was walking around the scene littered with broken glass.
Sgt. Staples took the 4 year old under his care and comforted her until EMS was able to stabilize the sister and prepare her for transport to the hospital. A family member later arrived to take care of this precious angel while her mother and sister were transported to the hospital for treatment.
We want to take this opportunity to recognize Sergeant Duke Staples for his service and kindness to a little girl who had just experienced a tragic incident
