CLEARWATER, Fla. – A Clearwater police officer was a knight in shining armor for one little girl earlier this week on Clearwater Beach.

The 6-year-old had wandered away from her family Tuesday evening on the north part of the beach. After she approached some beachgoers, Officer Rich Edmonds came to her rescue and set out to reunite her with her family.

Scared and crying, she didn’t want to get in the police car, so the two walked hand in hand for about a half-mile until the little girl was back with her family.
