Three cheers for Man­fred

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

I stopped to help an el­derly lady who had fallen near the cor­ner of Lo­gan Av­enue and McPhillips Street a cou­ple of weeks ago. In the com­mo­tion of clean­ing up the gash on her fore­head, repack­ing her bags and get­ting her back on her feet, I ended up leav­ing my iPhone in the grass.

Af­ter speak­ing with an ex­tremely help­ful MTS per­son, I elected to rely on the milk of hu­man kind­ness and texted the phone with our land line num­ber and my hus­band’s cell num­ber.

Within min­utes a young man named Man­fred called us. He had found the phone and was wait­ing for us to call.

Man­fred even de­liv­ered it to our down­town apart­ment block the next day and re­fused any of­fer of a re­ward.

Three cheers for Man­fred!
