A Virginia State Trooper’s act of kindness has gotten him a lot of attention from one loving mom.

Dr. Nada Owusu’s son, Joseph, was driving home from an exam at Virginia Tech on May 14 when one of his tires had “blown off his car,” ABC News affiliate WSET-TV/ABC 13 reported on Tuesday.

According to a post on Facebook, Dr. Owusu wrote that Virginia State Trooper Matt Okes “got on his knees to replace his tire” and “provided all the needed protection” until 2 a.m.

In the post, Dr. Owusu wrote the trooper never questioned why her son was driving a Mercedes, just showed up and tried to help.

Facebook friends, join be in expressing my gratitude to God and to Officer Okes, Matt a Virginia State Police officer. I took this picture at 2am in the middle of nowhere . My son had his back tire blown off his car last night on his way home from School. This kind officer approached him didn’t ask if the little Mercedes was stolen but rather got on his knees to replace his tire. When his effort failed he stayed with my son all night till we arrived at 1am with triple A. He provided all the needed protection especially from those tractor trailers till we were done by 2 am and till drove behind us for a while before exiting . Today I salute officer Okes! He is our hero and our “Good Samaritan.

“I wanted to thank him and share it with my Facebook friends about how a police officer helped my son,” she told ABC News today. “It was late in the night and he stayed with my son for 4 hours. I was expecting 50 maybe 100 friends to like it. Then it went viral, and I was surprised.”
