This footage from the Knoxville Police Department, shows the woman talking to officer Luis Sanchez in a parking lot. The woman proceeds to explain that her partner is in the hospital and now she is feeling ill.
Sanchez offers to help her, asking: “What do you need right now?”
“Really I need a jacket,” the woman responds.
The video then shows Sanchez returning to hand the woman a puffer coat. “Thank you so, so much,” she says.
