Twelve-year-old Sophia Michnick, like many other Capitals fans, made her way into downtown DC with her family to watch the Capitals Championship parade on Tuesday. Her Dad and brother wanted to stake out space at the rally, while Sophia stopped along the parade route, wanting to watch the Capitals pass by on the buses.
Disaster almost struck when Michnick couldn’t reunite with her family, due to poor cell service, and the sheer volume of people making it impossible to find them. She was freaking out, and in tears, but luckily Lt. Scott Brecht and Detective Robert Freeman of the U.S. Park Police found her and took her to a safe place…
Right next to the Stanley Cup.
