Anonymous act of kindness appreciated


TIMMINS - On Sept. 5, on my way back from picking up my daughter from daycare, I got a flat tire on Lafleur Drive.

Panicking, since my husband took our cell phone to work that day, I had no way to call for help.

I waited hoping some good Samaritan would stop and assist me in changing my tire since I had two young children in the car with me.

Alas, that was not to be, therefore I took a breathe and got the stroller out of my car and proceeded to walk with a baby in the stroller and my toddler holding my hand.

We walked all the way home which was near Don Bosco School.

Once I got home, I called my husband at work to let him know what had happened.

He explained to me he would get dropped off where the car was parked to change the flat tire.

I later found out someone took it upon themselves to jack up the car, take the flat tire, repair it and then replaced it.

What a great surprise to know there are still great people here in this City with the Heart of Gold.

To who ever did this great deed, words cannot express how much this has helped our family.


Thank you so very much!

Angel Villeneuve, on behalf of,
The Villeneuve Family

What the hell kind of comment is this? You would only stop and help someone if they are good looking?

P.S. By your logic, I hope you never break down. You'll be waiting a LONG time! [snicker

Got to love this reply comment on the news site of this article. [bol

Savour that deed, a rare thing unfortunately, I waited three hrs in the ditch on 144 one year in the freezing cold and when someone finally stopped they called police instead of a tow truck which was all that was warranted, No alcohol involved just winter conditions and they wouldn't let me contact CAA just there own flavour of the month towing company so out of pocket tow or they keep vehicle I'm told. Love the piglets!

Use is own jack, took off tire to have it repaired and reinstalled the tire. Or he had one of those miracle cans that blow up your tire...nice guy or girl.

That's why I think the guy only use one of those miracle tire cans, but still nice of him. He should be like spiderman and leave little notes.

Oh, many tire shops get very annoyed when you bring in a rim and tire that has been treated with that goop. There could be trouble.
