ROCKY MOUNTAIN, Virginia (KTVU) - A worried mother's Facebook post praising a Virginia State Trooper has gone viral. 

Dr. Nada Owusu, shared a photo of trooper Matt Okes, who she says stayed with her son for hours to help him with a blown tire. 

Facebook friends, join be in expressing my gratitude to God and to Officer Okes, Matt a Virginia State Police officer. I took this picture at 2am in the middle of nowhere . My son had his back tire blown off his car last night on his way home from School. This kind officer approached him didn't ask if the little Mercedes was stolen but rather got on his knees to replace his tire. When his effort failed he stayed with my son all night till we arrived at 1am with triple A. He provided all the needed protection especially from those tractor trailers till we were done by 2 am and till drove behind us for a while before exiting . Today I salute officer Okes! He is our hero and our "Good Samaritan. (courtesy Nada Owusu/Facebook)
