Toddler Leads Off-Duty Cop To Mother’s Body

An off-duty police officer was driving with his wife in Burton-upon-Trent, U.K. recently, when he noticed a 2-year-old girl walking alongside the road alone. The officer stopped to assist the young girl, asking why she was alone. The little girl’s answer would give the officer an ominous chill.

The little girl explained how she decided to walk to school alone after being unable to wake her sleeping mother. Fearing the worst, the officer drove the girl back to her mother where he would discover something tragic. The young girl’s mother, 30-year-old Nicolla Rushton, was dead.

The officer reportedly stayed with the toddler until emergency services arrived, which goes to show how officers are never truly “off-duty.”

The girl is now in the care of relatives. We pray God would be with the Rushton family during their time of mourning.


Dear Sister and Brother,

1. God IS in control.

2. Life is not always fair, it rains on the just and the unjust…we should not compare our lives to others but focus on the plan God has for us.

3. Bad things will happen in this world, but God promised us a home in heaven if we believe in Jesus. A home without sorrow, pain or death…where we never will grow old.
