Chicago police give warm coat to man in need

CHICAGO (WLS) -- Two Chicago police officers will be recognized Wednesday for helping a man in need. Video of their good deed has gone viral on social media.

Officers Peter White and Robert Osborne stopped to help a man out in the cold in the 15th District. They pulled over and gave the man a warm coat to wear.

One of the officers helped him put it on and zip it up. The other officer said, "No ticket today, just a jacket."

CPD Chief Spokesperson Anthony Guglielmi tweeted that this is the type of thing officers do every day in the city, but is rarely seen.
