WATCH: Injured officer gets a call from the President — while he’s still on stretcher

On Wednesday, Indianapolis police officer Robert Turner crashed his motorcycle on Indiana’s I-70 while escorting President Donald Trump’s motorcade to Air Force One.

Knowing that Turner was injured and taken to the hospital, President Trump placed a call before taking off.

Watch the video, posted on the Indiannapolis Metropolitan Police Department Facebook page:

The IMPD also posted the following:

“On behalf of the IMPD, we would like to take an opportunity to thank President Donald J. Trump for his thoughtful act in delaying his departure in Air Force One until he was assured that the officer injured in the motorcade accident was ok.”

“Calls were made by his staff to Chief Bryan Roach checking on Cycle Officer Turner. President Trump even took the time to speak with Officer Turner after the accident, to check on him.”

“Thank you for your compassion, concern, and leadership Mr. President!”

FoxNews reported that the officer broke an ankle in the fall on Interstate 70 — but he’s expected to make a full recovery.

He sure seemed in awfully good spirits while talking to the president.
