A good Samaritan, and pregnant too

After falling in the crosswalk of a busy street and sustaining injuries to his face, a distressed senior found himself being assisted by two women who had stopped their vehicles to help him get to a place of safety. After moving him and calling 911, they helped administer to his wounds until medical help arrived.

That would have been generous enough. However one of these initial rescuers, Michelle Reynolds, also stayed with the injured man, drove him to a medical clinic after he had refused to go to a hospital, stayed until he was cared for then transported him to his car. A pregnant Michelle rendered this assistance while also tending to her child.

This is a great town. Selfless people like Michelle help make it that way. Her children are fortunate to have her as their mom as we are to have her living among us.
