Eventful lunch

I had lunch with my stepson on Wednesday. As we were walking to East Side Marios, we noticed a pickup truck in the intersection that was not moving even though there was a line of cars behind it. The driver was having a seizure. Stepson went to check on him and I called 911. Another two guys stopped to help. They turned off the truck and determined he was having a diabetic seizure. Coke was provided, but the seizure was bad enough that he sort of fell from the vehicle and needed to be caught and then restrained for his own safety. Finally, the paramedics arrived and we went on our way. We felt good that we had noticed and helped.

You and your stepson should feel very proud of your actions! There are a lot of people who wouldn't have stopped to check on the driver. You guys not only did that but called 911 and stayed with the man. You and your stepson did a very good thing. :-D
I can't imagine not stopping to check on him. If we hadn't stopped, I would have felt guilty and never been able to forgive myself. Besides, I would hope someone would stop to help if something happened to me.
