Good Samaritan helps Mission family

Emergency services personnel acted as professionals

Editor, The Record:

On Nov. 12, my two daughters and I and another driver and his young son were involved in a car accident by the Junction.

I want to thank the Good Samaritan who stopped to help all of us, called 911 and stayed until emergency personnel were on scene. Your good deed will not be forgotten.

I also want to thank the Mission’s firefighters, paramedics, RCMP, doctors and nurses at the Abbotsford ER and pediatric unit for their compassionate and professional care.

You can say what you want about the system, but when all of these professionals come together, it works.

Sincere thanks to all, and we hope that all is well with the other driver and his young son.
