On our way to get our COVID-19 vaccine we got a flat tire on the freeway. We had to pull off on 33rd South. Just as we were calling for help and thinking we would be too late for our appointment, two men passed us, turned around and pulled up behind us.

A fire department ambulance pulled up behind them and put on their emergency lights, to protect us all. In about five minutes they had the tire changed and we were on our way to get our shot on time.

We tried to pay them. They wouldn’t take any money. We didn’t even get their names.

They were two angels to us and we would like to thank them publicly for coming to our aide.
