Thanksto Winnipeg firefighters

  • Print

Darkness was setting in as my daughter and I headed to my sister’s home in North Kildonan. We crossed the Bishop Grandin bridge over the river and then were completely lost.

Our GPS wasn’t working in Canada, and my cellphone would only call for SOS.

We tried three different businesses to help us get to Tu-Pelo Avenue. All their directions took us on a wild goose chase.

We circled for two hours in the dark, helpless and lost.

Finally we tried for directions at a Subway store. There, three Winnipeg firefighters were taking a break. They took us under their wing, gave us directions and then personally guided us almost to my sister’s doorstep.

Angels in disguise!

Thank you, Winnipeg firefighters. We couldn’t have made it without you.
