Cop comforts toddler during welfare check not knowing she'd 1 day become his daughter

Police officers do their best to save lives and help people. They go above and beyond their duties to make sure that the people under their care remain safe.

Lt. Brian Zach has always been haunted by memories of a 13-month-old victim he wasn’t able to save.

The incident happened in 2011 but the memories feel like they just happened yesterday. That feeling made him more motivated to be better at his job.

While working a night shift, Lt. Brian received a call about the case of a 2-year-old girl.

It was Kaila. She’d been rescued and reported because of her severe bruises and injuries.

As soon as he got the call, Lt. Brian quickly went to the child’s place.
There, he spent hours comforting the child. Together, they watched “Wreck-It Ralph” and did some coloring.
