Heartwarming video shows police car blocking traffic to help elderly man cross street
A video published by Russian news outlet UTV shows the man - who walks with the assistance of a cane - crossing the multi-lane October Avenue at an unauthorized place. Traffic on the busy road soon becomes too heavy, and the man is forced to stop in the middle of the street.
When the police officers spot the man making the dangerous maneuver, they immediately turn on the lights. This forces oncoming cars to stop, allowing the police to provide the elderly man with a safe path to the other side.
Once the man is on the other side of the street, the car quietly drives off into the night.
