Two Utah firefighters responded to a car crash this past weekend--and walked away with a manicure. CNN reports that nobody was seriously injured in the accident, but a young girl was clearly distressed as her mother got checked out by paramedics. That's when North Davis Battalion Chief Allen Hadley and Capt. Kevin Lloyd came to the rescue. "After noticing the child was holding bottles of fingernail polish, these two officers started talking to her about her polish and asked her I'd she would paint their nails," the department wrote in a Facebook post. "Within minutes, the child was calmly paining their nails and had forgotten about the accident she had just experienced. Great job Chief Hadley and Captain Lloyd for providing awesome customer service to one of our young citizens." Fire Chief Mark Becraft wrote in a followup post, "Kudos to these great guys that serve our community, it's just the little things that make a huge difference."
