Lucky for them, they ended up near the District 1 police station. Eight officers and another Good Samaritan teamed up to replace the bad tire with a spare.

"We were so impressed by their instant generosity, humor, friendliness, and efficiency," Welsh said.

She plans to bring some holiday treats to the station.
