A good Samaritan from the U.K. rushed to help out a helpless, fallen grandma who dialed the wrong number while trying to reach her daughter.
The kind stranger, Dang Vuong, was working at his office at Stratstone BMW in Wallsend, U.K. when he received a worrying call from an elderly woman, according to Metro.
The lady who fell after slipping in the bathroom was revealed to be trying to call her daughter for help but reached Dang’s office instead.
While it was immediately clear that the call was not intended for him, Dang still went out of his way to go out and save the poor woman.
“She called our landline and got through to our receptionist, who asked me what to do,” Dang said. “I said, I’ll go and make sure she’s OK – at first I thought she was just across the road, it turned out she was about two miles away. I drove over there while our receptionist kept her talking on the phone.”
Upon his arrival, Dang found the door was unlocked so he went inside the lady’s house to help.
“When I arrived, she was in shock more than anything, there was blood on her face and the bath was overflowing,” Dang narrated. “I told her who I was and then scooped her up and put her on the sofa and covered her with a blanket and waited until her carers and family came.”
Once the grandma was safe with her family, the 34-year-old sales manager bade his goodbye and returned to his job.
Sara Tweedy, the granddaughter of the injured elderly, was thankful of Dang’s help and said that if it weren’t for him, her grandma would have been left alone for quite some time. “We can’t thank him enough,” she said.
Dang said he was glad to have helped and felt he just did what anybody would also have done.
“I would have thought anyone would have done the same, especially with her being an old lady. I didn’t even think about doing anything else,” he said. “I’m from Blyth, and we’re a close-knit community. I know that anyone else from Blyth who had got that call would have done the same thing.”
