Then he noticed the poor little boy was covered in vomit, poop, and pee. Graham, a dad himself, decided he couldn't let the baby sit in his soiled carseat while they all waited for the Child Protective Services to arrive. So he and another trooper took the infant back to their headquarters.
That's where Graham gave the baby a bubble bath in the sink--and someone snapped this now viral shot. Then he wrapped the little guy in a towel and they cuddled until child services arrived. The boy is now safely with a legal guardian. But it's obvious he was feeling much better with Graham--you can tell by his big grin.
