Three firefighters from Raytown Fire Protection District in Missouri are receiving praise after they helped a wheelchair-using veteran get home on April 16. The battery on the veteran's electric wheelchair died.

A Wichita police officer helped a woman cross a busy intersection in a photo shared by the police department on Saturday.

The photo shows an officer walking alongside a woman in an electric wheelchair as she crosses the street. An American flag flies in the background.

Danny Lang took video of these Wichita police officers joining in a pickup game of basketball on Sept. 13, 2017 at Schweiter Park in Wichita, Kansas.

Police Chief Gordon Ramsay shared the photo on his official Facebook page and said it was taken by a passerby as Officer Tristan Fellows helped the lady to cross the busy intersection of Central and Maize.

“We appreciate your compassion and helpfulness Officer Fellows! #copscount” Ramsay said in the post.
