When a Florida family was distressed over their injured father, a compassionate police officer used music to ease their anxiety.
Officer Hernandez had been patrolling a Pembroke Pines neighborhood in his cruiser when he heard about a nearby household that had dialed 911.
A sick, elderly man was lying on the floor after a fall, and emergency workers immediately rushed to join Hernandez to make sure that the senior was okay.
“The man’s wife, she was very elderly too, she was stressed out about it and the daughter was stressed out, and [the family’s] aide was stressed out,” Hernandez told Inside Edition. “Everybody was sort of in a panic, not really knowing if he was injured or not from the fall.”
The officer then saw a piano in their living room and asked if he could play a few songs, as a way to soothe their worried minds.
Hernandez, who had been teaching himself to play the piano since he was 6 years old, then serenaded the family with covers of songs such as “Don’t Stop Believing” and “Fly Me To The Moon”.
Once the senior was confirmed to be in good health, the emergency crew members joined in with the singing until everyone was back in good spirits.
“The mood changed from kind of gloomy to something a bit more happy,” Hernandez added. “Turned out he was OK from the fall.”
