Mr. Boots to the res­cue af­ter fall

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

WHILE walk­ing along Portage Av­enue in front of the Univer­sity of Win­nipeg, my hus­band tripped and fell to the pave­ment.

Al­though sev­eral peo­ple con­tin­ued to pass by him, a man my hus­band can only iden­tify as “hav­ing on black work boots,” stopped to ask if he needed as­sis­tance. My hus­band re­al­ized at that time he was un­able to move, and Mr. Boots asked an­other passerby to call 911 for an am­bu­lance.

Mean­while, Mr. Boots re­mained with my hus­band, col­lected his bro­ken eye­glass lens and waited with him un­til the paramedics ar­rived and trans­ported him to the hospi­tal.

Our fam­ily sin­cerely thanks “Mr. Boots” for stay­ing with my hus­band and not try­ing to move him un­til help ar­rived. Your kind­ness was very much ap­pre­ci­ated.
