Man dressed as Elsa from ‘Frozen’ aids Boston police in storm

Video of a Boston lawyer dressed as Queen Elsa from the animated movie “Frozen” helping a Boston police vehicle stuck in the snow is being shared widely on social media.

When the police wagon got struck in snow in the city’s South End on Tuesday night, Jason Triplett, dressed as Elsa in a long blue-green gown and blonde wig, jumped into action.

He was caught on video by Chris Haynes, who was dining nearby.

Triplett tells The Boston Globe he bought the costume last winter and wore it Tuesday to give his friends a laugh.

Haynes says the best part is that the video shows Elsa’s “unmitigated commitment to helping get the truck unstuck.”

A Boston police spokesman says the officers in the stuck vehicle “would like to thank the Elsa-impersonator for the assist.”
