Published on August 12, 2016

Four policemen have gone beyond the call of duty — by cooking up some pasta for a distressed elderly couple. After neighbors reported hearing hysterical cries from the house of Michel, 94, and Jole, 89, the cops were quick to arrive on the scene.The elderly pair, who have been married for almost 70 years, became distressed after watching an upsetting news report on the television. Michel and Jole, who are rarely visited by guests, were also suffering from loneliness.

After arriving at the property, the Rome police decided to help out the couple in the best way they knew how, by cooking up a delicious spaghetti and Parmesan dish. Providing the elderly couple with food and company was enough to calm them down. The officers also called for an ambulance to check that Michel and Jolie weren’t suffering from any medical problems. Taking to Facebook to share the heartwarming story, the Italian police force, Questura di Roma, said: “There is not a crime.“ Jole and Michele are not victims of scams and no thief entered the house — there is no one to save. “This time, for the boys, there is a more daunting task — two lonely souls who need reassuring.“They understand that just a little human warmth will restore tranquility to Jole and Michele.”

Since the Rome police shared the heart-warming story to Facebook last week, their post has racked up a whopping 24,000 shares and 66,000 likes. Internet users from around the world have praised the cops for spending their time comforting distressed members of the community. One commenter remarked: “Thank you to the kind, sweet police officers who spent time with this couple. This was a truly kind act.” Another agreed: “Thank you officers for helping this lonely couple. Take care.”

Other social media users have even started a campaign to send Michel and Jole cards and letters to show their love and support.A kind-hearted Facebook fan requested: “Please put an address for the couple as I would love for my family to send care packages!” Another suggested: “If you could post and address I’d love to send a card to them.”
