Parking mishap leads to question of compassion

On Dec. 1, I attempted to cross Johnson Street to move my vehicle from a two-hour parking area

On Dec. 1, I attempted to cross Johnson Street to move my vehicle from a two-hour parking area. In my effort, I tripped and fell and was unable to reach my vehicle.

In the meantime, my wife got there as the tow truck was about to tow the car away. My wife explained to the truck driver what had happened, and he immediately ran across the street and with the help of three other people, carried me to the sidewalk.

While this was happening, the meter lady gave my wife a $60 ticket.

This added insult to injury.

One of the people who assisted called for an ambulance, and I was taken to Royal Jubilee Hospital and had major surgery on my broken kneecap.

Are these parking meter people not trained to assist a person when in trouble, or just hand out fines? She had no compassion.

I would like to thank Robin Bayley, Ali Romanow and H. Kanatrup, who stopped to assist me.
