LETTER: Heartfelt thank you to heroes who saved four women

It has been five days since a drunk driver hit the car my niece and her three friends were travelling in, sending the car into the ditch.

Re: Les Szabo’s letter, “A big thanks to selfless heroes.”

It has been five days since a drunk driver hit the car my niece and her three friends were travelling in, sending the car into the ditch upside down.

My niece was the individual airlifted to RCH. It has been an emotional week for our family, as well as the families of all the girls involved in the accident.

There have been many times we have spoken of the heroics of the people that stopped that night to jump into that ditch to help rescue those young women.

The gratitude we have for them is immense, and will carry that with us for the rest of our lives.

Because of them, four families have their daughters, sisters, granddaughters and nieces.

Today I opened the paper to find of all things a thank you letter from one of those heros – Les Szabo – thanking others for helping.

This just shows what an amazing individual you are.  We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for stopping to help, for not worrying about potential danger to yourself.

We thank all who stopped to help, the firefighters, the police, the EMTs and anyone else involved in rescuing these four wonderful young women.

It would have been a much grimmer outcome had you all not stopped to help.

You have made such a positive impact on us all. Thank you all for caring, for your selflessness.

We are forever grateful. You are our heros!
