Com­mu­nity heroes

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY VIEWS -

LAST Wed­nes­day my daugh­ter and I were in­volved in a three-car ac­ci­dent on Faust street, Proser­pine.

Within min­utes the po­lice were there check­ing the sit­u­a­tion and keep­ing others safe.

The firies ar­rived mo­ments later as well as the am­bos.

Th­ese peo­ple were re­as­sur­ing and car­ing in a very dis­tress­ing sit­u­a­tion.

We were trans­ported to Prossie Hos­pi­tal where we were given into the care of Dr Grimes and the nurs­ing staff.

Th­ese pro­fes­sion­als took care of us and re­as­sured us and eased our pain.

It was af­ter mid­night when we were given the all clear to go home. Too late for a taxi and with our only car out of ac­tion we were pre­par­ing to walk home.

That’s when nurse Tina went above and beyond the call of duty and took us home, even though I'm sure she was sup­posed to be off duty.

If there was an up­side of the ac­ci­dent it was ex­pe­ri­enc­ing true hu­man kind­ness.

You are all heros in our eyes and we are for­ever grate­ful for your ef­forts.
