LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A LMPD officer patrolling the streets Thursday saw a woman in need, and he sprung to action.

Fourth Division Officer Jeff Emerich saw a homeless woman sitting at the corner of Fourth and Oak Streets whose feet were swollen to the point she couldn't fit into her shoes.

Officer Emerich then went to his cruiser, got a pair of his own shoes and put them on her feet.
