A mother’s love: Female cop breastfeeds suspect’s hungry baby, wins the internet
A female police officer in China won the hearts of the people on the internet after pictures of her breastfeeding a four-month-old baby of an under-trial prisoner went viral on social media.
The incident occurred on September 23 at the Shanxi Jinzhong Intermediate People’s Court in central China.
According to a report in Daily Mail, the infant started crying while the mother was attending a trial.
The suspect then gave permission to a policewoman, Hao Lina, to nurse the infant.
“I am a new mother, I could feel how anxious the child’s mother would have been. All I thought about was to try my best and comfort the tiny baby”, Daily Mail quoted Hao as saying.
The heartwarming moment was captured by one of her colleagues, the pictures of which were posted on the court’s official website and now have gone viral on social media websites.
The baby’s mother was reportedly touched by the show of affection and couldn’t help but cry after leaving the court.
While Hao is being heralded across the internet, she modestly said,“I believe every police officer would do the same. If I had been the mother, I would have hoped someone to help my baby too.”
