HOUSTON — Cpl. Damon Cole is famous for his heroic acts. Whether it’s capturing shoplifters while dressed as Batman or driving 11 hours to be Superman for a boy with cancer, Cole knows what it means to rise to the occasion. 

On Saturday, Cole worked patrol with the Houston Police Department to assist with Harvey rescues. 

“It was heartbreaking seeing so many people that have lost everything from Hurricane Harvey,” he wrote on Facebook. “After I got off work I really wanted to do something more for the families.”

He called Houston Police Sgt. BK Klev who allowed Cole, dressed as Batman, into the George R. Brown Convention Center to bring joy to the families staying there. He even met with Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.

Cole shared photos of his act of kindness on Facebook and Twitter, saying “doing my part to help make these amazing families smile after going through so much. Be the reason someone smiles today.”


Time to be the reason someone smiles today.
