RCMP officers responded to a call to assist paramedics at a residence in the small village of Midway, B.C.

An elderly man was taken to hospital with one of the officers taking it upon himself to visit the home and check on the man's wife.

What he found was heartbreaking.

"The officer interrupted the elderly woman as she was in the process of breaking up household furniture to burn, in the home's wood stove, for heat," said Cpl. Jesse O'Donaghey, spokesperson for the B.C. RCMP's Southeast District.

"The officer immediately rounded up the troops, who travelled into the backcountry to chop wood, which they sorted, split, delivered and stacked for the local elder."

O'Donaghey says he hopes the news of this act of kindness will encourage more people to step up and help others in need.
