PINELLAS PARK, Fla. — An EMS supervisor's random act of kindness was recognized by police officers last week.

FOX13News reported that the Pinellas Park Police Department thanked Sunstar EMS Supervisor Josh Brumwell on their Facebook page for going above and beyond the call of duty. Brumwell, who was working a vehicle vs. bicyclist crash at a mall exit, said the bicyclist was not injured in the crash.

However, the man's bike was a total loss. Brumwell said the man broke down, saying the bike was his only means of transportation. Brumwell went to a nearby store and bought the man a new bicycle.

"This was an amazing act of goodwill during the holiday season," the Facebook post said.
