A photo of two small children being comforted by a pair of firefighters after a car accident in Texas has gone viral.
Amarillo firefighters Sam Berry and Jared Davis told KFDA that calming the children was simply a part of their job.
"Every guy on the job has probably done this, we just happened to get photographed," Davis said. "I'm a firm believer that compassion is a form of medicine."
The fire department shared the photo on their Facebook page last Monday. It has since been shared almost one thousand times. They captioned it, “It's not always just medical treatment we provide.”
Facebook users commented on the heartwarming post commending Davis and Berry for their compassion.
“We are all so proud and blessed by our superb, compassionate, reliable first responders! Thanks for your dedication and genuine concern in all you do for our community,” one commenter wrote.
Berry, who usually works out of a station in a different part of town, was just covering for a fellow firefighter at the time of the accident and took it all in stride.
"It's just what we do," he said. "It's cool to see it [the photo] out there."
The two children, who are not identified, were not injured in the accident.
