A Utah cop with a heart of gold offered to help a dad in need of a babysitter recently and now footage of the good deed is going viral. 

It all started when the dad was awaiting his hearing at a Utah County court along with his highly active two-year-old daughter.

When the man’s scheduled hearing time arrived, he tried to take his daughter into court, where children aren’t allowed.

The dad was at a loss for what to do when Officer Kevin Norris of the Orem Police Department stepped in to the rescue.

Officer Norris, who was waiting to appear at his own court hearing, kept the girl entertained on his lap by showing her cartoons on his cellphone.
