Four men rush to rescue an old lady stuck on her broken scooter in the pouring rain
Four brave young men helped an elderly woman get home safe after her scooter broke down in the middle of a pouring Florida rain.
On Sunday night, in the midst of heavy rain, an elderly woman was heading home. Unfortunately, her electric wheelchair broke down. This left her completely helpless, as she wasn’t able to fix it herself.
Thankfully, four young men, who were on their way home from work, saw the struggling old lady and rushed to help. The heartwarming moment was captured by Katty Castro, a public relations representative for the Florida Living Independent Community in Seminole County.
Despite the awful weather, the kindhearted men volunteered to push the woman back to the retirement residence where she lives, which was nearly a mile away.
As per Daily Mail, Castro was moved by the young men’s gesture and posted pictures of the touching scene in the app Nextdoor, where community members share events happening in the area.
Speaking to FOX News, the public relations representative said:
“Since this is a very quiet neighborhood I was surprised to hear a commotion, laughs and four gentlemen pushing one of my lady residents under a heavy storm in Florida. They were pushing her up the big slope toward her residence. These heroes were so focused on helping regardless of the inclement weather and they were even covering her with an umbrella, which showed more compassion on their part.
As a mom of teenagers, I want my children to grow up like these ‘modern heroes,’ to make a difference each day no matter the environment.”
Castro urged: “In these rough COVID times, let’s demonstrate compassion to one another.”
JohnMorgan Massa, one of the men who helped the elderly lady get home safe, commented:
“Holding a door, smiling, picking up someone’s spilled groceries, reaching for an item on the top shelf in the grocery store; and, yes, helping someone whose electric wheelchair broke down in the rain are things almost anyone can do.”
The men who were praised for their benevolent act of kindness work at Rebounderz Adventure Parks in Forest City. Massa said:
“We were tired, dirty and wanted to get back to the hotel; but, knew without a doubt that regardless of our long day, it certainly wasn’t worse than the day this lady was having. She literally had a plastic bag on her head to keep her hair dry. We knew we couldn’t leave her in the rain, in the middle of the road, frantically trying to get her scooter to work again.
“We just wanted her to get home safely. We never expected recognition, just helping a fellow member of our community.”
