An NYPD police officer on Friday reportedly gave a shivering homeless man the sweatshirt off his back, as temperatures dropped in the city to a bitter 28 degrees.
The New York Post reported that an unidentified cop parted ways with a navy blue sweatshirt when he noticed a homeless man visibly cold near the United Nations building.
“He gave it to me, he said, ‘Don’t worry about it,’” the homeless man said, recounting the moment.
“I felt good about having it,” the homeless man, who used multiple names, added.
The incident was captured by a photographer who reportedly recalled hearing the cop telling his partner, “No, it’s OK — I’ve got several of them.”
The officer did not give his name, but had a nameplate that read “Ramos,” according to the New York Post.
