Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - OPIN­ION -

LAST week my daugh­ter was driv­ing with three young chil­dren in her car along Alexan­der Road in Bel­mont and was in­volved in a se­ri­ous ac­ci­dent.

Thank­fully, al­though the car was badly dam­aged, the baby twin girls and their sis­ter were un­harmed.

I was trav­el­ling be­hind their car and wit­nessed the ac­ci­dent.

I would just like to thank all the help­ful lo­cals who came to our as­sis­tance, both with wit­ness state­ments and of­fers of help.

Sev­eral peo­ple of­fered wa­ter, helped hold the ba­bies and com­forted them. We were of­fered a spare car seat and were gen­er­ally sup­ported dur­ing this or­deal.

We were also very im­pressed with the quick re­sponse of the emer­gency ser­vices.

The fire bri­gade was very help­ful and pro­fes­sional, as were the am­bu­lance crews. The po­lice even­tu­ally re­sponded to our plight and took con­trol of the sit­u­a­tion.

The am­bu­lance took the chil­dren to Princess Mar­garet Hospi­tal for mon­i­tor­ing and the staff there were re­mark­able. We sin­cerely thank the doc­tors and nurses for their very good care.

Af­ter such a trau­matic ex­pe­ri­ence it is ter­rific to think that so many peo­ple were will­ing to help us out.

Many thanks to you all. It goes to show that peo­ple in Perth re­ally are won­der­ful peo­ple. Name and ad­dress sup­plied.
