PUEBLO — In the early hours of Saturday morning, a Pueblo Police officer spotted a woman on the W. 4th Street bridge.

According to Pueblo PD, the woman's electric wheelchair had died and she'd been stranded on the bridge for over two hours with no way to call for help.

PD said Officer's Golden and Nash were able to get her in one of their patrol cars and loaded her chair in the other. They then drove the woman home and helped her get safely inside.

Pueblo PD said this was all in a night's work for these two officers, who also helped a lost and naked child get home earlier in the night.
