CLEARWATER, Fla. (WFLA) – Clearwater firefighters purchased a new bike for a child after finding out he didn’t have one of his own recently.
The crew from Station 45 C shift helped the child who had his finger stuck in the chain and sprocket of a bike.
The child went to the hospital to get stitches and was treated for a broken finger.
The bike was a small girl’s bike. Firefighters asked the mother why he was riding a small bike.
When they found out he didn’t have one of his own, they pooled their money together and bought the youngster a bike and helmet to go with it.
