Brighton Police Officer Nick Struck Sings a Lullaby to Distract Baby Whose Dad Died in Car Crash in Colorado

A photo from a tragic Colorado crash scene is going viral after an officer followed his instincts –the instincts of a father. He distracted a 2-year-old girl whose dad had just died by singing her a lullaby.

The accident happened last Thursday near I-76 and Buckley in Brighton, reports KDVR-TV in Denver. A father was killed, and his wife and three of his children were injured. A fourth child — the youngest — wasn’t hurt.

Brighton Officer Nick Struck was dispatched to the scene.

“We started kind of attending to the kids,” he said.

While paramedics worked on the injured, they handed the toddler to Officer Struck.

  • Oh, I get emotional. How this baby live without his father?? I don’t know. But good job by the police officer. Such a great social work by the police officer. I want to meet with the police officer. Can you please help me in this way?

  • I pray that other officers follow officer Struck’s path. Our children, given to us by God, need all the love we can give them.

  • Officer Nick Struck was guided there by God for a reason & he was wonderful with her,you can see how relaxed she is in his arms.
