CALIFORNIA (WIVB) — A California Freeway Patrol officer has earned plenty of praise for taking time out of his busy day to save a kitten.
Darryl Poe noticed the tiny black kitten wandered beneath a stopped semi-truck in Oakland.
He jumped into action and quickly scooped it up before handing it over to another officer.
That officer took it to a shelter.
Officer Poe says this was not the first time he saved a life.
Last Fall, Poe helped save a woman from a burning car, earning him a “Driver of the Year” award, and last week, he jumped into action to assist a downed motorcyclist get to the side of the freeway before calling paramedics to check in.
Poe says it’s all just life on the Bay Area Freeway Service Patrol.
