A driver in Palm Beach Florida was having a seizure in his car, which came to a stop in his neighbor’s yard. The owners told the man who rushed to the driver’s aid to “get off our lawn,” officials said. It was unclear if the owner of the home was Packing Heat.
As the driver convulsed in his car in their front yard, the owners the home started yelling at a Lawn Worker who rushed to the man’s aid. “Get the man out of here,” the homeowners told the good Samaritan. “Have him die somewhere else.” Huh, Ummmm, they said Whaaaaaat?
According to the sheriff’s office, the Lawn Worker, identified, as Tony, was walking to work when he saw the driver having a seizure in his car. Good Samaritan Tony ran toward the moving vehicle and grabbed the car’s fender in an attempt to stop it from rolling farther down the street. The car ran over Good Samaritan Tony’s foot, but thankfully he had steel-toe boots on! The car finally stopped in the homeowners’ yard.
The convulsing driver was “in terrible shape” when Good Samaritan Tony got to him, according to the Sheriff’s office. The car’s windows were up and the doors locked, so Good Samaritan Tony started screaming and begging for someone to help, authorities said. That is when the homeowners told him to “get off our lawn,” according to the Sherif Office.
Good Samaritan Tony recognized the driver, remembered he lived nearby, and ran down the street to the man’s house, where he was able to reach the driver’s wife and call 911.
“Because of Tony’s actions, we received a call yesterday from the man he helped,” stated the Sheriff’s Office, “The man called us to ask for Tony’s phone number. The man said, ‘I want to talk to Tony….. He saved my life.’”
“The grateful man and his wife went and found Tony, and gave him a hug,” the sheriff’s office said.
