Nebraska State Patrol Trooper Steven Sosnowski put them to use this week when he responded to a mom and her kids whose car had slid into a ditch about 20 miles west of Omaha.

As he was getting one of the children set up in her car seat, Sosnowski noticed the girl was wearing a “Frozen” sweatshirt.

“Is that Elsa?” he asked, trying to keep her mind off the scary scene. “I know Elsa, Princess Anna, Olaf.”

Perking up, the little girl added, “And Kristoff and Sven.”

“Oh, I love Sven,” the trooper said as he finished getting her buckled in.

Good job, Trooper Sosnowski. Keep those dad skills sharp.
