Does it ever cross your mind that your one simple act of kindness can change someone’s life forever? Every little bit of kindness can make a huge difference in the world around us.
That is what happened to a little girl that almost lost her life 3 years ago.
Corporal Sherry Rego from the Collier County Sheriff’s Office was at a gas station when a little girl came up running to her.
“While pumping gas this beautiful girl came to my truck… tears rolled in my eyes as I looked at her, her parents and big brother…”
“Her mom said to her do you remember your angel, why did she say this? Because just over 3 years ago I was giving her lifeless daughter CPR. She was almost 2 and today she proudly shared she is 5 and on her way to Disney!”
The beautiful and unexpected encounter was shared on social media and the people at Collier Country Sheriff’s Office shared the same post on their Facebook page.
“She was crying happy tears a minute ago when we called and asked permission to share this beautiful post from her personal Facebook page.”
“This was such a blessed reminder why I do the job I do, and beyond grateful to the amazing agency I work for that believes in top-notch training for their deputies and equipment to do our everyday tasks.” Rego said.
The post went viral and was shared over 10,000 times. The little girl’s grandmother took to the comment section to share the story behind the corporal’s heroic act.
“This lady was an absolute angel! My grand daughter would be dead right now if this police officer wasn’t paying attention. She was 2 years old and fell in the bottom of the swimming pool. She gave her mouth to mouth resuscitation and prayed over her. This is an absolute miracle.”
We couldn’t agree more. The corporal is at the right place and at the right time. If it wasn’t for her, we could have lost one little angel. What about you? What can you say the corporal’s heroic act?
