LOS ANGELES, Ca. (WJW) — An officer from California is being recognized for coming to the aid of a woman who is hearing impaired.
According to the California Highway Patrol’s Facebook page, Officer Rodriguez responded to the DMV for what he thought was a disturbance call. But when he got there, he quickly realized the only problem was one involving communication.
A woman who was trying to apply for an ID had trouble talking to the employee behind the desk, so Officer Rodriquez offered some help.
He translated using American Sign Language. He also reportedly paid for the fee after realizing she didn’t have enough money.
Many on social media are thanking Officer Rodriguez for his act of kindness.
