SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — A South Dakota trooper braved cold and windy conditions to honor LEOs who died in the line of duty.

The trooper did 39 push-ups - one for each LEO who died in the line of duty this year - during a blizzard that swept through the state over the weekend, the Argus Leader reports.

The department posted video of the trooper’s act on social media, and has been shared more than 5,000 times on Facebook.

“As we bring today to a close, let us not forget about the 39 law enforcement officers, this year, who have given the ultimate sacrifice to keep us all safe,” the department wrote on Facebook.
