A New York City tourist named Jennifer Foster just happened to be in the right place at the right time as NYPD Officer Lawrence Deprimo generously gave his boots to a homeless man. According to a statement made by Foster from the NYPD Facebook Page, "Right when I was about to approach, one of your officers came up behind him. The officer said, ‘I have these size 12 boots for you, they are all-weather. Let’s put them on and take care of you.’ The officer squatted down on the ground and proceeded to put socks and the new boots on this man. The officer expected NOTHING in return and did not know I was watching."
The photo was posted on the NYPD Facebook page where it received over 388,000 likes and 121,000 shares. Just in time for the holiday season!
