Help On The Beach

Help On The Beach

Dear Editor;

Yesterday, (Sept.3) I went to join my wife at the beach. When I got to he entrance, at 137 Street, I saw her lying down, white as a ghost. I was helpless, except for pouring some cold water on her forehead. I though it was a passing spell, but with passing of time she got worst. It was then I decided to run to the beach. There I yelled "emergency, emergency I need a phone" Within seconds I had ten, fifteen people round me offering the phone. Our good friend Helen and all others, run, like a lightening, to Jo, One girl, after testing Jo's pulse, advised me to call an ambulance. "Already done," answered another girl. Another call was made to my son in law. Within minutes, the police and the ambulance were there. A first test showed a very low hearth beat. Jo was rushed to Peninsula Hospital, where she is still is. At this point I would like to thank all those people that, unselfishly, run to help. Thanks to the police; thanks to the ambulance men.

They provided the best physical as well moral assistance. God bless them all.

A special thanks to Helen and her sister. I wish I could personally thank them all.

When I told Jo about the help from friends, she said that they are not friends, they are angels from Heaven.

What a community, what a friendship. We are so proud to be part of Belle Harbor . The best on Earth. At this time Jo feels a little better. After a few more tests she will be coming home, to her family, to her friends to her garden. God bless you all.
