An elderly man had no way of getting to the hospital to see his sick wife, so a Deputy Chief with the Montoursville Police Department in Pennsylvania picked him up at his home and drove him there.

This is what the department posted on their Facebook page:
“We were sent a picture of Deputy Chief Jason Bentley helping an elderly man into UPMC Susquehanna.
The man’s wife went to the hospital a couple hours earlier by ambulance for a medical emergency.
The man didn’t have any friends or family in the area to help him go see her.
Deputy Chief Bentley picked him up at his home in Montoursville and gave him a ride to see her.
Shortly after the picture, hospital staff came out with a wheelchair and took him to his wife’s bedside in the Emergency Room.”
Afterward, Bentley said, “This is a small town. We pretty much help everybody. Everybody knows everyone here.”
