Officer rescues teddy bear

Eight-year-old Nikki Mayo somehow managed to lose her stuffed toy along a busy stretch of highway. A police sergeant spotted it and stopped traffic in order to retrieve it, thinking someone was probably not happy about losing it.

Thanks to a dash cam rolling, thousands have watched the officer show his soft side, stopping for an object on I-164. It was Nikki's teddy bear in the busy roadway. Sergeant Cullum was able to catch up with her family down the road, who had been searching for the precious cargo, and safely return the bear.

Tonight, Nikki says thank you, because this bear is a special one. "This is the first bear I've ever had," says Mayo. 'Chocolate' the teddy bear has been with her since she was four. "We know the importance a teddy bear plays in society. They save the world sometimes. On that day the teddy bear needed saving," says Sergeant Cullum.

Reuniting a little girl and her bear, Cullum says a thank you was plenty enough.

"This has really turned into something way more than I thought it would have. I appreciate it that people are giving it positive attention. Seeing her holding that bear, not just holding it, but hugging it like she's never going to let it go, i'm really glad that I stopped," says Cullum.
