Man dressed as Disney's Elsa frees Boston police van stuck in snow

A good Samaritan attracted the internet's attention after a blizzard dropped 16 inches of snow in Boston's South End on Tuesday.

Video footage shows a man dressed as Elsa, of Disney's animated film Frozen, helping push a police van stuck in the snow.

Onlookers were reportedly heard applauding and shouting "Let him go."

People magazine identified the man who helped to free the van as a 37-year-old Boston attorney who dressed like Elsa because he wanted to "blend in" during the storm.
