A thank-you to Good Samaritans and bike helmets

A reader gives thanks to Good Samaritans and bike helmets after an accident near the Big Eddy bridge.

Editor,

Last Monday, I had a very sudden fall off my bike just as I rounded the corner onto Front Street after coming off the Big Eddy Bridge. My helmet definitely saved my head from serious injury. Fortunately for me there were a number of drivers waiting to cross the bridge who witnessed my accident. I personally want to thank Chelan Morton and her partner and their dog for coming to my aid. They were very kind and I gratefully accepted their offer to drive me and my bike home – even though it was well out of their way. Thank you to all the others who also offered assistance. It is so reassuring to know that Good Samaritans abound in our midst. I was back on my bike again after only one day and thankfully all is well yet again.

Josie Woodman,

Revelstoke
