The Malenfant family missed their train from Boston to Maine, but still made it home on time thanks to an understanding police officer.

Kori Malenfant, 19, and her family arrived in Boston on Saturday after spending nearly two weeks in New York. Malenfant was there for brain surgery, and was looking forward to finally getting home to Portland. After missing their train by five minutes, they prepared to spend several cold hours waiting in the station. They asked Boston Police Capt. Kelly McCormick if he knew where they could store their luggage, and he brought them to his cruiser and said they could hang out with him while he got gas.
