Boston police officer Kelley McCormick drove a family home to Portland, Maine, after they became stranded at a train station on Saturday with their 19-year-old daughter, who had undergone brain surgery just days before, WMTW noted.

The family had been in New York so that Kori Malenfant could receive the surgery and after over a week they were ready to go back home.

However, a five minute late arrival meant they had missed their train and were stuck at the station, having to face the freezing temperatures while they waited hours for the next train to come.

The family were looking for a place to store their luggage and decided to enquire at the Boston Police Department’s North Station office, when McCormick offered to assist, telling them to follow him to his unmarked police vehicle.

"They looked tired. (Kori) looked cold and frail," he said, according to WMTW.

Malenfant explained that the police captain said they were going for a little ride.

"He pulled into the police station, got gas, and quickly started heading north," she said in a post to Facebook.

"We were all pretty confused at this point, and assumed he was going to ride us around a little bit to warm us up (we were so happy and thankful!)."

However, when her mother asked where they were headed, McCormick said he was kidnapping them, but that it was legal.

"We soon realized he was driving us all the way to Portland, back to our car," Malenfant said. "He said there was no way he was going to allow me to sit in the cold so soon after surgery and that it was his pleasure to drive us."

It turns out that McCormick knows all about major operations, having donated his kidney to his wife who underwent a transplant, FOX25 reported.

"Being in that moment is so exhausting," he said. "If you just make a small difference, it must have had a great effect on them, which is great, but we like to do that every day. Every officer wants to do that every day."

It took about two hours but the family arrived safely back home and the police captain returned back to his post at the station.
