Dear Editor:

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the folks on the North Shore for their kindness.

On Tuesday, April 6, I was walking up Lonsdale and took a fall at the corner of 11th Street and Lonsdale. My foot caught a tree root and down I went, face first.

A very special man came to my rescue. I don`t remember his name, but he told me he was a first-aid attendant for a company on the Island. He was so kind, called an ambulance, got a hold of my husband, who was at his eye appointment, and stayed with me until the medics arrived.

Several people stopped to see if they could help.

A young fellow from the restaurant I fell in front of brought me a pillow and a blanket.

I’m still in awe of the kindness shown. Thank you, special people of North Van.

Carol Jorgenson,
