'We're dads, we're people,' says Milwaukee cop featured in viral photo with 2-year-old boy he rescued

A photo of a 2-year-old boy eating chicken McNuggets on the lap of a Milwaukee police officer had been shared thousands of times on social media by Tuesday.

Officers Vin Paolo and Dan Resnick were called to a vacant, boarded-up home on N. 29th St. near W. Locust St. on Friday morning to assist child welfare workers who had received reports of a pregnant woman living inside, according to Milwaukee police.

The officers found the woman and her 2-year-old son, who was wearing several coats, in the unheated house. They got the hungry boy a meal from McDonald’s and brought him into the warmth of a squad car.

As the boy sat on Paolo's lap, Resnick took a photo and sent it to Paolo's wife because the couple have adopted five foster children.
