A Florida boy who was nearly killed by his own father in 2018 found a new home with one of the detectives who responded to the crime scene.
WKRC News reports that Corporal Mike Blair of the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office went to a call where a man had killed his girlfriend and daughter. He also stabbed and lit his 8-year-old son on fire.
“We were told there was a child being medevacked to Tampa General, but he was not expected to live,” said Blair.
The detective went to visit the boy named Ronnie in the hospital a few weeks later and the two quickly bonded. The boy even asked if Blair could stay and watch a movie.
Blair couldn’t stay with Ronnie that night but knew there was a connection between the two of them.
