Environment Canada reported temperatures in London, Ont. hovered around -11 degrees Celsius Sunday afternoon, and felt closer to -20 with the cold wind.
Speaking to CTVNews.ca, London Police Service spokeswoman Sandasha Bough identified the police officer as Const. Ozzie Nethersole.
"This is just one example of where cops go above and beyond to help others," Bough said. "This situation was captured on camera and shared via social media, but it is an example of something that happens one way or another every day by police officers everywhere."
