Random acts of kindness
Stranger stayed until help arrived
I was driving along Highway 8 to a cousin’s gathering at Spruce Sands in July. I lost control of my vehicle and landed on the edge of a farmer’s field, going through about two feet of water and hitting a hydro pole. No sooner had I come to a halt when a complete stranger waded through the water and mud to stay with me until help arrived. He was on his way to Winnipeg to watch his grandchildren play baseball. I told him I would be all right and that he was going to miss the game, but he insisted on staying until help arrived. His clothes and shoes were wet. I will be forever grateful to Clint Kennedy for being there with me until assistance arrived. Hope you got to see some of your grandchildren’s baseball game. I’m also thankful to the St. Andrews Fire Department and the ambulance staff, Philip Habbacon and his female assistant whose name I forgot. I suffered a compression fracture of my spine. My recovery is slow, but I’m doing well.
