A couple of weeks ago i was passing by a 68 yr old man on a ladder when he fell off the ladder and onto a wall and over the wall, I helped him sit up to enable his to breathe more easierly and call the ambulance, and tried to make him comfortable....
I tried to contact his wife on mobile but she had left it at home !!!!
So I left a note on the door to say where he had gone and made sure the house was secure.
It turned out he broke 2 ribs in the fall ..
They have just been to see me with a huge bunch of flowers, just as big box f Dairy Milk and 2 bottles of wine.....!!!!!!!
but it's the card that almost reduced me to tears as it was hand written which said
You are a good Samaritan!
You help others when you can,
Some pass by on the other side
Without your help , I may of died!
Don't get involved are their ways,
it may of been, i'd had my days,
from the bottom of my heart, I say thank you,
may god take care of you in all you do !
Tell me anyone else would of done the same for this old man unlike his "friends" from the church who he has since found out that they drove past when this was happening... Bare in mind I myself was on a mobility scooter with a broken ankle when this happen !!
