Moab Girl Gets New Helmet After Crashing Bike Near Police Officer
MOAB, Utah – An elementary school student in Grand County got a surprise gift from a police officer after she crashed on the sidewalk.
Officer Risenhoover saw Natyla Sampson crash on her bike while on her way to Helen Knight Elementary School.
He stopped his vehicle to check on her, and used his bottled water to clean off the scrapes on her hand.
As Risenhoover spoke with Natyla, he learned she did not have a helmet. After helping her on the way to school, the officer spoke to police Chief Jim Winder and Assistant Chief Bret Edge about getting a helmet for the girl.
After some conversation, they went to Chili Pepper Bike Shop. Owner Tracy Bentley offered to donate a helmet, free of charge.
Officer Risenhoover was then able to meet with Natyla in the school administration office and give her the helmet.
Officials said Risenhoover’s actions did not surprise them one bit. They said that’s just the kind of person he is.
