(KTVB)  A photo of a Mountain Home, Idaho police officer has gone viral on Facebook.

The photo shows Kyle Holloway pushing an elderly man bound to a wheelchair in triple digit heat.

"I was just doing my job," Holloway said.

He said the call came out as an elderly gentleman stranded along a main road in town in a motorized wheelchair. Holloway said another officer responded to the call and he had gone to assist.

"Since his wheelchair wasn't working I mean I'm not going to have him sit in the heat. Might as well push him home."
