A touching video showing a Huntington Beach police officer playing hopscotch with a homeless girl while another policeman makes housing arrangements for her mother has gone viral.
The officers were initially dispatched to the area of Graham Street and Edinger Avenue Wednesday morning to check out a “suspicious occupied vehicle,” the Huntington Beach Police Department posted on Facebook.
When they checked inside the car, however, they learned that the occupants were a mother and her 11-year-old daughter, according to the post. The two were homeless and had been living in the vehicle.
One of the officers contacted the department’s Homeless Task Force to help make housing arrangements for the pair, and began discussing them with the mother.
