Kenya: City Cop Saves the Day for Woman, Children Lost in CBD

A police officer who helped a woman and her children find their way in the city centre on a rainy morning is the hero of the day.

The unidentified traffic police officer abandoned his work station to guide the woman and her two children to where they were going.

He was pictured holding the woman's toddler and escorting the family cross the busy Haile Selassie Avenue near the Railway roundabout.

Photos of the officer and the mother elicited dozens of comments from Kenyans on Twitter.
