On-duty police officers mow lawn of elderly woman

- On a weekend designed to honor America’s working men and women, three police officers did something extra while on the job for a person they serve.

Birmingham, Alabama police officers Erik Henderson, Robert Lewis and Ivy Nicole Jackson were on duty Sunday in the city’s North precinct when they saw an older woman mowing her yard in the heat.

The three officers jumped into action, and took turns mowing the yard for the woman.

It took the officers about two hours to mow the yard using the unidentified woman’s push mower.

On his Facebook page, Officer Henderson wrote, “WHILE ON PATROL ME AND MY FELLOW OFFICERS IN THE PICTURES DECIDED TO HELP OUT AN ELDERLY WOMAN WHO WAS CUTTING GRASS IN THIS SCORCHING HOT SUN! SO WE CAME TOGETHER & CUT IT FOR HER!”

Officer Henderson said they believe they might have prevented a medical situation for the woman who he estimates is in her 70’s because of the extreme heat.

In an interview with Al.com, Officer Henderson said, "A lot of people don't like us but we're here to help."

"You've got to be nice to people," he added.
