A police officer helped a young Hingham, Massachusetts, boy up after he'd fallen off his bicycle on his way to school on Friday, WBZ-TV reported.
The officer then proceeded to take the child for a ride in his police cruiser and dropped him off at school.
The boy, in response, drew a heartwarming picture and penned an equally sweet note to the Hingham Police Department for their above-and-beyond service to the community.
The boy, 11-year-old Nate, wrote, "Dear officer who helped me on the morning of 9/21, thank you very much for giving me a ride in your police car.
"I guess you were just in the right place at the right time!" Nate wrote. "I was the boy who fell off his bike on Lincoln St. Again, thank you so much!"
On Saturday, the Hingham Police Department shared a photo of the boy's moving message on Twitter and identified the officer in question as Officer Jeff Kilroy.
The tweet read, "Our day made. This awesome drawing & message from 11 yr old Nate. Offiver [sic] was driving by, helped him after he fell off his bike on the way to school. Ofc. Jeff Kilroy gave him a ride the rest of the way. #LittleThings."
