When a man called Mr. Good came to the aid of an old man in the middle of the night, he lived up to his reputation.
Nick Good works as a cab driver in the English county of Dorset. Lynda Wells came running out of her house about midnight as he was about to pick up a customer in Salwayash.
Wells, 71, looks after her 88-year-old husband, who suffers from advanced Alzheimer’s disease.
Her husband had fallen out of bed, and despite her best efforts, she was unable to pull him off the floor after 20 minutes. Wells dashed outside to see if any of her neighbours were still awake, but there were no lights on in the vicinity. When she saw headlights coming down her street, she was about to call for an ambulance.
She asked Good to come inside and assist her, and he accepted, and the two of them worked together to bring her husband back into bed.
Wells did not even have time to ask the driver for his name before they parted ways, but they were able to reconnect via social media.
She gave Good a bottle of wine as a thank you gift on Monday.
“I am so lucky that Nick just happened to be driving down the road at that very moment and was kind enough to put his face mask on and come inside and help me – it was like an angel appearing,” Wells said.
“I was out in the street in my dressing gown and wellies so goodness knows what he thought of me. I am so pleased that I was able to connect with him on Facebook so I could take him a gift to say thank you.”Follow Us
