A New York police officer came to the rescue after a four year-old boy lost the drone he received as a birthday present.

4 year old Jack lost the drone he received for his birthday. He and his father ran up and down the street looking for it. Officers from the West Seneca Police Department even pitched in to help find it. But no luck.

Officer Joseph Sorbini decided no kid should be without his drone on his birthday. So he delivered Jack a new one. "A national tragedy avoided," the West Seneca Police Department shared on Facebook.
