In November, New Orleans Police Department Officer Daniel McCreary responded to a shooting in the St. Roch neighborhood where seven-year-old Chloe'ee Williams was shot. Officer McCreary kept Chlo'ee stable. 

She was transported to University Medical Center, and then Children's Hospital New Orleans’ helicopter, Abby came to Chlo'ee's aid. She was airlifted and brought to Children's Hospital where she received extensive treatment and went through rehabilitation for two months.

On January 28, the pair were reunited as Officer McCreary and other NOPD officers escorted Chlo'ee home from the hospital.
