Thank you for assistance, care

2018-03-13 06:01

Just a short word of heartfelt thanks to some people who assisted me during a recent unfortunate car accident. It gives one hope and belief in your fellow humans.

I was fairly shaken and shocked during a two car collision in which I was involved. The impact forced my car onto its side and made it difficult for me to orient myself and to exit the car. Thankfully some paramedics who were on their way to another incident passed by and stopped. Their swift action helped me to exit the car quickly and safely and before leaving they summoned an ambulance. This assistance in my opinion was a contributory factor in reducing the trauma and discomfort I experienced at the accident.

Furthermore another person, an ex-student of mine, Taryn also stopped as a passer-by. She contacted my family members telephonically on my behalf as I was in a state of shock. They (my family members) hurriedly came to the scene and having them with me helped reduce my anxiety and possible trauma at the scene of the accident in my opinion. The people who provided me with a chair to sit on and some water and ice are also thanked for their compassionate assistance.

A special thank you also to the neighbourhood watch fraternity who came to the scene promptly. They secured the accident area, organised traffic flow and removed debris from the road. Their swift action ensured that the scene was safe for all road users including pedestrians and cyclists. They also assisted in getting my car back on its wheels so that it could be towed away safely.

So this is just a big thank you to the folks mentioned above. You were really of assistance to me in your different ways but mostly you entrenched my belief that people are inherently good rather than bad and willing to help those in distress and need.
