Twelve-year-old Sophia Michnick got lost at the Caps Victory Parade. Crying and terrified at first, it ended up being the BEST DAY OF HER LIFE!
She'd headed to the celebration with her dad and brother. But they'd wanted to stake out ground by the stage, and she wanted to see the parade. When she tried to find her family, she couldn't even get to the meet up point.
Lt. Scott Brecht and Detective Robert Freeman of the U.S. Park Police stepped in.
They saw how distressed Sophia was, so when they couldn't find her dad, they took her to the cup--The Stanley Cup. Lt. Brecht said he told her it was going to be a great day.
Caps captain Alex Ovechkin was standing right over her shoulder, but she was a little to star struck to say hi.
She is so grateful to the U.S. Park Police officers for the opportunity of a lifetime.
Sophia's worried dad finally found another officer, who got on his radio, and reunited the family.They escorted them all to the players' VIP tent, and you can just imagine it turned out to be the most amazing day for the family!
