MOORE, Okla. -

On Tuesday, Moore dispatchers received a call from an 82-year-old woman who called saying she had no power and didn’t have a flashlight to see.

Moore police dispatched two officers her way, Sgt. Wells and Sgt. Melton.

“I didn’t have any light and I was very old,” said Patricia McDonald.

When the two officers showed up they took action.

“Did you have a flashlight up here?” asked one of the two officers.

McDonald said after a while they were able to find her some candles and a flashlight, which she said the officers made sure had extra batteries.

The officers were about to leave, but before they did they made sure McDonald was warm and draped her in a blanket and handed her a pillow.

Not long after the two had left, Sgt. Wells, showed back up to the woman’s house. But, he was not empty handed.

“McDonald’s didn’t have power,” said Wells. “So, I went to Braum’s.”

McDonald said he brought her coffee, two hamburgers, fries and a thing of cookies.

Then when Wells was on his way out, McDonald said he took things one step further and took out her trash.

She said she is at a loss for words over the kindness both officers displayed.

"I cannot thank you enough you went far beyond what the duty should be for an officer,” said McDonald.
