AURORA, Ill. – Suburban police officer went “above” and beyond to help a boy in Aurora.

Aurora police officer Jeff Parrish and Sergeant Doug Podschweit were sent to a home after a 911 call was hung up.

They found a 6-year-old boy had made the call because he accidentally threw his fidget spinner onto a neighbor’s balcony.

The officers stepped up to the challenge because that neighboring apartment was vacant.

They grabbed a ladder from a neighbor and found the spinner.

The boy was very happy and even posed for a picture with the officers.
