A photo of a New York City cop has gone viral for all the right reasons.

On a cold November night, Officer Lawrence DePrimo noticed a barefooted homeless man on the street.

Instead of walking by, he went to a store and bought the man a brand new pair of boots.

He didn’t stop there. He even helped the man put them on.

Officer DePrimo says, he’s no hero. He was just doing the right thing.
