Two officers with the Kansas City (MO) Police Department attending the National Fraternal Order of Police Convention in New Orleans rushed to the aid of a man who had been stabbed in the chest by a panhandler late last week.

According to Fox News, the two officers—Justin Pinkerton and Todd Templeton—observed a disturbance outside the city bus they had just boarded and quickly exited the vehicle to come to the aid of the victim.

Pinkerton stopped the bleeding while Templeton kept the victim alert.
