According to the Boston Police Department, the officer was “hurt” during the stunt that was filmed by onlooking colleagues but is believed to be otherwise ok.
The Mayor of Boston, Michelle Wu, told NBC Boston: “We want all of our public spaces to be beloved and if it looks like we need to make sure that there’s more signage that this is for children or something, we can do that too.”
The clip has since become a viral hit across all social media platforms, becoming an instant meme.
One person reversed the video so it hilariously looks like the cop is getting sucked into the slide.
Another person mocked that the sound he made coming down the slide is the same sound ice in those big machines makes.
