Se­nior thank­ful so many helped af­ter fall

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

I was walk­ing at River Av­enue and Os­borne Street when I tripped and fell on my face.

As I was get­ting up with my nose bleed­ing pro­fusely, Mary­lou and a friend came rush­ing with nap­kins and sug­gested I should press them to my nose. They asked if there was any­one they could call and I asked that they call my daugh­ter Suzanne, who was at work.

They then walked me to the nearby Star- bucks so I could sit down. The waiter gave me an ice pack for my nose. Mary­lou and her friend stayed with me un­til my daugh­ter ar­rived.

When my daugh­ter did ar­rive, we went to the Mis­eri­cor­dia Hos­pi­tal. Thank­fully, noth­ing was bro­ken.

I wish to thank the staff who were so nice and acted so quickly.

I want to thank Mary­lou and her friend for their quick as­sis­tance and the waiter at Star­bucks who pro­vided an ice pack. If it weren’t for their quick ac­tions, things might have turned out dif­fer­ently.

I am a thank­ful se­nior.
