Fire­fighter to the res­cue

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - THE SOCIAL PAGE -

MY son Fabian, who uses an elec­tric wheel­chair, and his worker An­drea were on their way home when the wheel­chair stopped work­ing.

They were a few blocks from home. You can put the wheel­chair in man­ual op­er­a­tion and push it, but it is very heavy. An­drea called me at home to say she was in a bit of a pickle as she was so tired out from push­ing and didn’t think she could make it home.

I set out to find them, and when I did a re­tired fire­fighter had stopped his car to help.

He was a very nice man and told us that he was re­tired and vol­un­teered at the fire­fight­ers mu­seum. He in­vited my son to come and visit some­time. We thanked him so much for help­ing us, but thought he de­served a spe­cial men­tion in ran­dom acts of kind­ness.
