Officer gives boy with Down syndrome the watch he wore in Iraq
ST. LOUIS -- On a hot St. Louis summer day, Shay Gillespie took her 9-year-old son, Diggy, and his older brother downtown to hand out water and snacks to the homeless. While they were there, two officers stopped by and offered to accompany them to make sure there were no problems. Gillespie said Diggy has Down syndrome and a lot of people are drawn to him, but in this instance, Diggy was immediately drawn to officer Chad Cross.
