Toxey Andrews’ 10th birthday was meant to be filled with fun and friends. But despite inviting 21 of his classmates, not one of them showed.

Heartbroken that her son had no one to play with on his big day, his mother Angela vented her frustration on Facebook.

Telling KTHV, she said: “It’s the last thing you want to feel for your kid, that no one cared enough to come.”

One person who saw the post was an Arkansas state trooper, and with the help of a few of his colleagues, he went to young Toxey’s home for a belated birthday celebration.

The five officers brought with them gifts and cake, and they let him sit in with them in the squad car.

Toxey said: “They showed me all the keys to do the sirens and the horn. I also got to see the cage with the dog in it,” he said.

“They had come to give me all that stuff and make up their own birthday party for me.”

Toxey was truly spoilt at his belated birthday party

Mum Angela was so touched she wrote a comment on the Arkansas State Police Facebook page, which they later shared.

Angela’s thank you message

“I don’t even know where to start because saying ‘thank you’ just doesn’t seem good enough,” wrote Angela.

“They made my sweet baby’s day, and his year!”

“Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I will never be able to repay the kindness you showed my family today!”

“Come on friends, let’s make these guys famous! They deserve to be recognized for the wonderful people they are!!”

The incredibly generous cops are Cpl David Forthman and Troopers Terry Sawyer, Kyle Sheldon, Brandon Cook, and Tim Callison.
