Call it the caper of the Ironic Ice Cream.
And the Chelsea Police were right on time to solve it.
Police reported that on Monday as they were preparing to set up for the Eclipse Party at City Hall, one of the duties was to get the Copsicle Truck and go get popsicles and ice cream from Rosev Dairy on Griffin Way.
It’s what the officers usually do when they prepare the new Police and community sponsored ice cream truck, but this time was different.
Officer Sammy Mojica, Sgt. John Noftle and Officer Joanne O’Brien were on their way back from filling the truck when they spotted an officer who had stopped a car going the wrong way in front of City Hall.
Mojica recognized the man as one of the owners of Rosev Dairy.
Officers quickly realized the man was diabetic and he was head-on into severe diabetic shock.
He needed sugar, and he needed it quick.
And the three officers just happened to have a truck full of sugary ice cream fresh from that very man’s dairy.
The three quickly secured a popsicle and gave it to him. After a few minutes, he stabilized and was taken for treatment.
It was quite a save.
“I went in the truck and got an ice cream we had just purchased from this man’s business,” he said. “So the man from Rosev Dairy was saved by Rosev Dairy, via the Copsicle Truck. That’s a good story.”
