I’d imagine many in our online community have saved a life during their lifetime.
I almost died a few times, but was saved by others.
If you have saved someone, I’d encourage you to keep telling that story to others, but also so that you don’t forget, due to modesty, and years gone by.
But today, it happened to me. I saved someone.
On my way home from work, as I was crossing a high traffic and heavy pedestrian street. One street is particularly risky as it goes at an angle, so the vehicles come up behind you, not just from your front, left, and right.
I noticed a young lady jogging, everyone else waited for the traffic to pass, and I noticed a bus going about 15 MPH. Everyone seemed to freeze still on the sidewalk, except for that jogger as she ran into the street in front of that bus.
I was not close to her, but about 10 feet behind her, as I was on the sidewalk, with no time to think and not within grabbing distance, I yelled out to her, Whoa!, Whoa!, Whoa!, Whoa!, Whoa! (pointing towards the bus driver, who then pressed on the brakes).
Guess I must have thought about when I rode a rambunctious horse, IDK.
But thank goodness, my yelling must have gotten her attention, as I then noticed she looked around and about, and finally she looked toward her left, behind her a little, her blind side, she suddenly stopped and then turned back quickly to her right, narrowly avoiding the bus by an inch, and making a face of embarrassed laughter.
