Woman Reunites With NYPD Officers Who Saved Her Life on Christmas


A binge-drinking Brooklyn woman who turned her life around after officers found her blackout drunk on the street was brought to tears Tuesday when the #NYPD organized a surprise reunion with her heroes.

Johnelle Mays, 27, told The Post in December how she was inspired to get sober on Christmas Day a year earlier when two officers from the 79th Precinct showed her compassion after she relapsed, instead of throwing her in the drunk tank.

Mays had been hoping to find and thank the mystery officers she called her “guardian angels” — and finally got the chance Tuesday when she was invited to 1 #Police Plaza to meet Chief of Department Terence Monahan, who then surprised her by bringing the two Finest into the room.
