A Nebraska State Trooper helped keep a child calm after her mother’s car slid into a ditch in icy conditions in Waterloo on January 22, by talking about the movie Frozen.
Footage released by the Nebraska State Patrol shows trooper Sosnowski strapping a small child into a car seat of a rescue pickup truck while he asks the girl if Princess Elsa is on her sweatshirt.
“Is that Elsa? Is it? I know Elsa. Princess Anna. Olaf,” Sosnowski said, to which the girl replied: “And Kristoff and Sven.”
“I love Sven. I love Sven,” Sosnowski said, before securing her into the car seat.
“When a mom and kids slid into a ditch near Waterloo yesterday, Troopers responded to help,” Nebraska State Patrol wrote on Facebook. “That’s when Trooper Sosnowski’s dad skills came into play, talking to this young lady about Frozen to keep her mind off the scary scene. Happy to report that mom and kids are fine.” Credit: Nebraska State Patrol via Storyful
