The man was putting up signs saying, “You Saved My Life,” in block letters and described how he had got a heart attack while driving his car which caused a crash, and how rank strangers pulled him unconscious out from his car, called 911 and performed CPR on him.
The signs were signed: “Forever Grateful, Joe.” “That just touched our hearts,” said Deborah Williams who was one of those who were involved in the rescue after the accident caused damage to hers and her husband’s parked cars.
She said “Joe” was unresponsive, not breathing and was pale and blue sitting behind the wheel. She said, “Joe’s” passenger tried to help, and she and her husband Alphonso Williams helped to pull “Joe” out of the car.
Another resident, Rome Gross went to get a nurse, an unidentified woman, known as Miss Toni also helped immediately and performed CPR on it. Deborah Williams called Miss Toni “an angel”. Williams said, “She just got down there and started pumping on him.”
“She hugged my wife,” said Alphonso Williams. “I was thinking that between prayer and people sticking together, we can even bring back life,” Mr. Williams said with tears beginning to form.
“Joe” is retired and lives a block away from the incident, said a neighbor, “Joe” is out of the hospital and recovering at home, according to his thank you note.
Mark 12:31 “The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.”
