An Act of Bravery

Today I witnessed an act of bravery. I was out walking and the railway crossing gate started dinging and descending. I live near a nursing home and the residents are often out strolling with their rollators. An old woman obliviously pushed her rollator onto the tracks, not realizing she was in a dangerous no-man’s land, as the barriers were almost completely down. The wheels of her walker got caught on the tracks. All of us on either side were yelling at her to get off the tracks. Suddenly, a guy streaked by, swept her up in one arm, her walker in the other and ran to the other side. Two men then pushed up the crossing guard so that our rescuer and his rescuee were able to get to safety. All of us observers broke out in applause for the hero of the day. Seconds later the train roared by.

If you’re the guy who did this wonderful deed, bravo to your courage and quick thinking!
