Minnesota State Patrol trooper gives a doctor he pulled over for speeding his N95 medical masks

Minn SP trooper gives doctor his protective masks

A Minnesota state trooper moved a doctor to tears when he turned what should have been a speeding ticket into a heartwarming act of kindness. Dr. Sarosh Ashraf Janjua, a cardiologist at a coronavirus quarantine unit in Duluth, was pulled over by Trooper Brian Schwartz for speeding on March 21.  But instead of a ticket, Schwartz handed Janjua five N95 masks he was supposed to use as protection -- along with a firm warning for speeding.  "I burst into tears. And though it may just have been the cold wind, I think he teared up a little as well, before wishing me well and walking away," Janjua said.  "This complete stranger, who owed me nothing and is more on the front lines than I am, shared his precious masks with me, without my even asking."
