Bear hug saved day

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

THERE truly are an­gels who walk amongst us. I was help­ing my el­derly friend get onto the down es­ca­la­tor at the Polo Park Hud­son’s Bay store on Oct. 29. She had as­sured me she had no prob­lems us­ing es­ca­la­tors. Hold­ing our purses, with her walker in one hand, I held her with the other as she at­tempted to board the es­ca­la­tor. She be­gan to lose her foot­ing and was start­ing to fall for­ward when a guardian an­gel jumped from be­hind me onto the es­ca­la­tor, grabbed Dot in a bear hug and held her all the way down to safety. If it had not been for this won­der­ful man, I am sure we would have had an ac­ci­dent. I like to be­lieve for ev­ery ac­tion there is a re­ac­tion, so I wish noth­ing but the very best for this fine, car­ing in­di­vid­ual. God bless you.
