"Neighbors help dig path for ambulance"

by MO_Thoughts2 on February 27, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I love good news stories. We have had two rounds of snow in five days. Both storms dumped about a foot of snow on us. Residential streets are the last to get plowed. I was watching the news last night and they broadcast this story. One of their neighbors was have cardiac issues after shoveling snow. A man who was outside when the ambulance started down their street noticed it was stuck so he went down with his shovel to help. After a few minutes, he looked up and 10 or 12 of the neighbors were in the street digging out a city block so the ambulance could get to the man. Hospital officials said those minutes saved his life.
