VIDEO: Kentucky Officer Helps Determined Woman Finish 10K Run

A woman running Louisville, Ky's Rodes City Run 10K Saturday was helped to the finish line by a city police officer.

Asia Ford had trained for the race for months. But approaching mile five of the 6.2-mile course she began to falter and have difficulty breathing.

As she struggled step by step, she felt a hand grab her hand. Lt. Aubrey Gregory of the Louisville Metro Police Department had been looking out for Asia from afar.

"The EMS guys got out to check on her and she said I'm not stopping, I'm not stopping," Lt. Gregory told WAVE TV. "So I said I'm not going to let her stop we're going to do this together. So I got out and I grabbed her hand. I had to meet this inspirational woman."

For Asia, quitting was not an option. She has lost 217 pounds in her journey to a healthier life, and she hopes to inspire her three children.

"He [Gregory] was like my angel," said Ford. "He came at the moment I really needed him."

That was way cool. Too many times these acts of kindness by Officers do not get the press and publicity that they so richly deserve.
