Help of passersby appreciated

Several people came running with umbrellas, first aid blankets, coats and other stuff to comfort girl that had slipped off the curb

Last Thursday afternoon, I was driving down 6th Avenue in Hope and came to see a young girl laying in the gutter with several of her friends standing around her, she was not moving.

I stopped and asked her friends if anybody had called 911. She was injured when she slipped off the curb and fell down. Within minutes, there were several people there trying to keep her dry as it was pouring rain, the heaviest seen in a long time, and the gutter was running wide. Several people came running with umbrellas, first aid blankets, coats and other stuff to comfort her and keep her as dry as possible until the ambulance arrived.

I would like to thank all of the great people of Hope who got quite wet coming to the aid of this young lady. Hope she is fine.
