Police kindly rescue accident victim
Recently (August 5, 2011) one of our clients was due to move to Matamata into her newly purchased property. Unfortunately before she left Auckland she was involved in a car accident. Stranded, with her furniture already on its way to Matamata, she was at a loss as to how she was going to get here. Her car was not driveable. Thank goodness the police came to her rescue; an Auckland officer drove her through to the Ngatea turn-off and then the Matamata Police kindly collected her and dropped her to her new place.
This was above and beyond the call of the duty for the police.
We feel we need to draw attention to this and give the police the pat on the back they deserve.
