Heart­felt thanks to ‘an­gel’ who helped af­ter crash

Sunshine Coast Daily - - NEWS -

WHAT do you say to a per­son you’ve never laid eyes on, but who held your hand through one of the tough­est days of your life?

Al­most three weeks af­ter a hor­rific crash on Beck­mans Rd, Te­wantin, Michelle Cain met her “guardian an­gel”.

Driv­ing not far be­hind, Jane Hawkins was one of the first on scene when the truck rolled on Jan­uary 14.

“Thank you, thank you,” Ms Cain said, fight­ing back tears, to Jane Hawkins, the good Sa­mar­i­tan who stopped to help. “Thank you for hold­ing onto my hand.”

“I was ner­vous about what I was go­ing to come across. I was glad you were both talk­ing,” Ms Hawkins said. “You were both so calm.”

Ms Cain said while emer­gency ser­vices worked to free her, Ms Hawkins held her hand and re­as­sured her ev­ery­thing was go­ing to be OK.

“She helped me fo­cus. I knew there was some­one on the out­side who was wait­ing and she kept grab­bing my hand,” Ms Cain said.

“I just did what I would like in that sit­u­a­tion,” Ms Hawkins said.

Ms Cain and son Jack, a pas­sen­ger in the crash, are home re­cov­er­ing.
