Good Samaritans Pitch in to Help When a Pickup Drops Its Load
Good Samaritans began arriving on the scene. She described them as “just a bunch of average joe’s [who] got together and help[ed] someone who they saw needed help.”
Knickerbocker explained there were seven different young men who happened to be passing by on foot or got out of vehicles. “[There was] even a young man from within the pizza restaurant [who] came out and got together to assist this gentleman,” she said. One of those helping was her husband.
All the passing drivers were polite, she noted. “No one shouted or blew their horn,” she wrote us.
The extra hands were very much appreciated by the older gentleman, Knickerbocker explained. “The gentleman who dropped the load had stated that he had just recently had back surgery and was not doing too well physically so he was very grateful to everyone who helped pick up his supplies and put [the load] back in his truck so quickly,” she explained.
“It makes me proud to live here when I see something like this,” she said.<
