Letter: Thank you to community angels after Boxing Day spill

Good samaritans offer thoughtful assistance after resident's fall

Boxing Day I was out on my usual brisk walk when my shoe caught the edge of a partially hidden curb and down I went, near Cadboro Bay Road and Todd Road.

Within moments a flock of angels appeared, a gentle man soothed me and rubbed my back so gently, he spoke with another man and they said it looked like I needed an ambulance. I agreed and asked that someone fetch my husband at our house one block away. I gave my address and they brought him to me.

Meanwhile, a sweet lady held my right hand and put something just under my face and told me to be gentle. I think her name was Linda.

To all you dear, considerate, compassionate  souls thank you, thank you, thank you.

My fractured pelvis is healing, my fractured elbow too.

With gratitude,

Marney Armitage
