VIRAL VIDEO: Officer helps 84-year-old get to her hair appointment
MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WSMV/Gray News) - A video of a Tennessee officer went viral on TikTok after he reportedly helped an older woman get to her hair appointment.
For Murfreesboro Police Department officer Lance Hofmeister, Tuesday was a routine day until he noticed something out of the ordinary on the highway.
“I was driving down Old Fort Parkway and noticed what appeared to be a senior citizen walking down the highway with her walker,” Hofmeister told WSMV.
He then stopped to check on the woman, who he later learned was 84-year-old Elizabeth Goode.
Goode told Hofmeister she had taken a bus from Nashville and was trying to make it to her hair appointment at the Paul Mitchell Hair School a mile up the road. He then offered to give her a lift, and the two chatted.
“I lost my grandmother a couple of years back, and it just gave me that feeling all over again of just the sincere nostalgic kind of … it was a great feeling,” Hofmeister said.
Goode got her perm thanks to an act of service captured on camera and posted on TikTok.
“It was definitely a sweet moment, and I’ll always remember it,” Hofmeister said.
