VALDOSTA, Ga. (WCTV) - Monday, the Lowndes County Fire Rescue (LCFR) surprised a local 3-year-old who it assisted in March after he broke his arm with a special visit.

In a Facebook post, the agency said that on March 1, the child, Elim, broke a bone while playing with his brother.

LCFR responded to the scene to provide care until EMS arrived. LCFR promised him that they would return and let him tour their firetruck once he was healed. The child was transferred to SGMC.

Just over a month later, LCFR paid a visit to the child and gave him a fire truck to play with, and, according to the Facebook post, he “loved every second” of the visit.
