Guardian an­gels save the day for young woman

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

MY hus­band and I had driven to 7-Eleven to mail a par­cel.

As I got out of the car I stepped on a plas­tic bag, lost my bal­ance and fell back­wards, hit­ting my head on the car parked next to us.

Be­fore I could blink an eye, two young men came run­ning to my as­sis­tance. Af­ter as­sur­ing them I was OK, they helped me up.

They no­ticed that my head was bleed­ing, so Ryan (one of my an­gels) called 911. He ex­plained that an old lady had fallen and was bleed­ing from a cut on her head. And I was think­ing, “I’m not an old lady — I’m only 81.”

Ryan ap­plied pres­sure to the wound us­ing pa­per tow­els that his friend got from 7-Eleven, un­til the paramedics ar­rived. When the paramedics ar­rived, they stopped the bleed­ing and ban­daged my head, while ask­ing me dozens of ques­tions.

Since the am­bu­lance was stuck be­hind a train and I was ob­vi­ously OK the paramedics sug­gested that my hus­band drive me to an emer­gency ward or a walk-in clinic for the stitches I re­quired. Ryan stayed with us un­til we left for the clinic.

Thank you again Ryan and friend. You were truly my guardian an­gels.
