Heartwarming photo of officer buying homeless man shoes goes viral

A photo is going viral all because of the generosity of the New York City police officer in it.

A tourist snapped the photo after noticing a man without shoes asking for change.

The officer noticed it, too.

But officer Lawrence DePrimo didn’t just leave it there; he found out the man’s shoe size and bought him a pair of boots.

NewsChannel 3 has a special “People Taking Action” award for the officer. We’re hoping he has the chance to visit one day!
