City of amazing people
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.
