A Police Officer Responded To A Call From An Upset Teen. What He Did Next Is Truly Amazing
May 9, 2014
13-year-old Cameron Simmons called the police because he was upset after fighting with his mom. Cameron told police he didn't want to live in the house with his family anymore.
Officer Gaetano Acerra responded to the call.
"I said, 'You have it good, you have a roof over your head,'" said Acerra. "I told him I would try to help him out."
But when he arrived, he noticed the boy didn't even have a real bed. He was sleeping on an inflatable mattress. In fact, Cameron didn't have nearly anything he needed for a bedroom.
"My heart went out for him," said Acerra. "I thought the little things that he needed I could give him, to make him a happier kid."
A few weeks after the call, Acerra showed up at Simmon's house with a truck full of gifts including a new bed, television, desk and Wii game system.
"I didn't do this for publicity or to get people to notice me," Acerra said. "I did it because I could. It was the right thing to do and I think people should do things like this."
