A sudden storm sprung police into action to help one of their older residents.

According to Peabody Police, citizen Beverly was attending the last of the free Summer Concerts at Peabody Veterans Memorial High School on Sunday evening which was due to end in an annual fireworks display.

Unfortunately, mother nature had a different plan and Beverly, who turns 90 this year, needed some assistance making her way across the field in sudden wind driven rain, thunder and lightning.

Civilians Cheryl Millard and Andrea Titelbaum who were helping Beverly were met by Sgt. Harkins and Officers Falco and DeRoo who ran out to carry Beverly to safety.

The Peabody Police Department thanked the officers for their service.

“Protecting our citizens is our #1 priority.”

    It was a torrential downpour going on at the time of the concert, with high winds, thunder, and lightning. I’m surprised that the concert wasn’t cancelled ahead of time.
