Passers-by came to the rescue after a pedestrian accident at a local shopping centre.

The Editor:

A note of heartfelt thanks to the many people who came to my aid when I tripped on a curb and fell in the parking lot of the Lougheed Superstore and Dollarama on May 19, 2022.

The arms of assistance, the questions of concern and the bottled water were at my side instantly.

In particular Lorena, a nurse, tended to my immediate wounds, drove me home and then drove my husband back to pick up our car.

We do live in a wonderful community of helpful people.

The concern and care given to me by everyone was a great comfort then and continues to be as I recover.
