This is the moment a kind traffic cop looks after a 10-year-old girl’s hamster while she is in hospital after finding the pet in a minibus crash that killed the driver and injured 12 others.
The minibus was reportedly involved in a collision with a Kia car on the Lopatkovo-Efremov motorway as it travelled from the cities of Tula and Lipetsk, both located in the western Russian regions of Tula Oblast and Lipetsk Oblast.
