My fiancé had dropped his keys while walking downtown. I was just getting ready to leave my work when a young man, possibly a University of Winnipeg student, walked in and asked if I knew who owned the Escape in the parking lot. I said I knew the owner, and he pulled the keys out of his pocket and said, "Then these would be yours."
I was speechless. He said that he found them near Portage Avenue and Colony Street and decided to make it his mission to find the owner.
We found out just how useful the panic button is on the vehicle key as that is what alerted him to the vehicle. Another person might have gotten in and driven away but not this Good Samaritan.
We are so very grateful. This act of kindness has restored our faith in humanity. I promised the young man that I would pay it forward, and I will. Thank you.
