City of amaz­ing peo­ple

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

I was leav­ing work to pick up one of my four daugh­ters from school. I had not gone even a few blocks when I was in a col­li­sion. The dam­age was min­i­mal, but my airbags de­ployed. A hand­ful of peo­ple stopped their ve­hi­cles, waited to make sure I was OK and gave me their con­tact in­for­ma­tion to serve as wit­nesses to the crash. A very kind man came to my car, made sure I could get out and walked me through the whole process of what I needed to do with my car. He made phone calls to get my car towed. He opened up his ve­hi­cle for me to col­lect my­self. He drove me to get my daugh­ter and drove us back home to the rest of our fam­ily. I like to think I gave this very kind, gen­er­ous man a few op­por­tu­ni­ties to go about his night, but he put his plans aside to help me — and it made all the dif­fer­ence in mak­ing the stress­ful in­ci­dent bear­able. I am very grate­ful and ap­pre­cia­tive to Chris Scrym­geour for be­ing so self­less and kind. I am also thank­ful for ev­ery­one who stopped and of­fered their help. Win­nipeg re­ally is an amaz­ing city with amaz­ing peo­ple.
