Mesa Police Officer Scott Valdez was dispatched and went to the Skabelund home. On the way, he stopped at a McDonald's and bought a Happy Meal for little Charlie.

When Officer Valdez arrived at Charlie's home, he checked to be sure Charlie was safe, and then gave him his Happy Meal, meeting the family in the process.

Charlie was at first afraid he was in trouble.

But in no time, he and Officer Valdez became friends, and the Officer explained to Charlie what 911 actually does, and the right ways to get Happy Meals.

Charlie, a preschooler was thankful and pleased to share his Happy Meal with his sister.

"We were so appreciative of how Officer Valdez handled the situation," Charlie's mother Kim told CNN.

"He taught Charlie a valuable lesson that day, not only how to use 911 appropriately, but also how to treat others with love and kindness."
