When New Orleans Police Officer Mike Montz saw a blind man attempting to cross St. Charles Ave. in stormy, flooded conditions this past Monday, he immediately helped the man cross to make sure he was safe. He never imagined anyone saw his act of kindness, and never thought twice about it. Well, someone did notice. Rahsaana Ison and her daughter, 12-year-old, Kassidy Ison noticed. Kassidy snapped a picture of his awesome moment, and it's making it's way around the internet.

From WGNO -

“Kassidy was able to capture that picture of humanity.  Another human being helping out another human being.  Such love and compassion.  You see so much negativity with police officers and you really don’t see that kind of compassion.  He held his hand, and he didn’t even know that man,”  Ison said.

Officer Mike had no idea that anyone saw what he did.

“I wasn’t looking for any praise.  I think this will help boost morale.  It shows citizens that we are doing our job and out to do good,”  Officer Montz said.

In the eyes of the Ison family, he’s a hero of the streets.

“He made me realize that people really want to help in the world,”  Kassidy Ison, said.
