As featured at NBC‘s on Monday, Kevin and McKenzie Wells uploaded the photo of John Bradley on Facebook to show the world their gratitude for his act of kindness. The couple said they run out of milk for their 17-month-old son Holden, but residents were not allowed to go out from their houses that time.

According to the report, Trish Sommers, McKenzie‘s mother was then paying a visit to the family. She went out the house hoping to find someone to buy the milk, and found Bradley, who did not hesitate to do the family a favor. Kevin Wells took the photo of the kind policeman, which was shared more than 100,000 times on Facebook.

“It just meant the world that he literally went out and got two gallons of milk. We wanted to pay him but he wouldn’t take money from us. He was just so generous.” McKenzie Wells told the report, adding they initially thought of removing the photo online because they think that Bradley would get offended. .

“The fact that it went as viral as it did was kind of crazy. We kind of thought we were going to get in trouble at first, so we pulled it off. We just didn’t want to upset the officer, but we didn’t think it would be everywhere.” Wells added. Boston Police Department later posted the same photo on their official Twitter account.
