- 2-year-old girl throws a tea party for the policeman who saved her life a year ago
- Corporal Patrick Ray, a Rowlett police officer, helped little Bexley after she choked on a coin
- The two said they are best friends forever
A two-year-old girl threw a tea party for the policeman who saved her life a year ago.
In an article written by Sonia Rincon of CBS2, it was disclosed the young girl, Bexley, held the party for Corporal Patrick Ray — the Rowlett police officer who helped her after she choked on a coin.
“We’re best friends, right? Forever,” Ray told the young girl.
Ray was very happy when he finally got her breathing again.
“It was the most beautiful sound I’d ever heard in my entire life,” he said.
The day when Ray saved Bexley was an unforgettable moment for Bexley’s mother, Tammy Norvell.
“This is a day that I will celebrate. Because I have her,” she expressed.
With this, Norvell hired a professional photographer to capture her daughter, who is now nearly three years old, with her favorite police officer.
“Whenever I do ask my children, ‘What do you want to pray for?’ Bexley always says, ‘Officer P. Ray. Officer P. Ray,’” Norvell shared.
To note, Bexley’s brother also prays for the police officer.
“The night of the Dallas shooting, he asked if Officer P. Ray was okay. I wasn’t ready for that question from my five-year-old,” Norvell said.
A sweet side of a policeman
Bexlay’s mother said she hopes that the photos will counter the negativity directed at police.
“I want people to have an image of the sweeter side,” she expressed.
Meanwhile, Ray said he expects to get some teasing, but it’s okay.
“I’m sure I’m probably gonna get a tea set or something. We’re buddies. I can watch her get married. I can watch her have a family. She could have lost her life that day. And I got super lucky,” he stated.
