Woman praises community for helping selflessly

Dear Editor:

What a wonderfully, amazing community you live in.

On April 11, our family was involved in a rollover accident on Hwy. 12 east of Andover. The number of good Samaritans who came to our assistance was amazing. From the young man first on the scene who called 911 to the young couple in formal attire who stepped up to receive the little ones as we got them out of the vehicle. We are grateful to the andover Fire department who responded so quickly and to the ambulance crews who checked us all out; to the Day County Sheriff’s office for their presence and traffic control; to the fireman’s wife who brought out her personal vehicle to provide shelter and containment for the children; to the two carloads of nurses who offered their assistance and to the farmer who brought his tractor and loader to help clear the accident. To our friends from Aberdeen who brought out a vehicle for us to use to get back home and to the many other people who assisted, we are so very grateful. We are truly overwhelmed with gratitude for everyone who made this terrible situation so much better.

No one was hurt because of child seats with five point harnesses, seat belts and side air bags. The good Lord and his angels were on duty as usual.

Patti Haas,
Canby, MN
