It was just another normal Thursday for Randy’s driver, Chris. He was on his regular route in Plymouth when he looked in his rear view mirror and saw someone lying on the ground. He quickly got out of his truck, and hustled over to where the person was.

 

Her name is Candace, or “Candy” and she had just taken a fall on the slippery ice outside her home. She is a retired person that had moved not long ago to be closer to her kids so she can take care of her grandkids when needed. The fall resulted in a massive cut on her head that bled profusely.

 

“I quick popped the parking brake on the truck, and jumped out to run over there. She was kind of in a daze, and I helped pick her up off the ground. She was bleeding pretty good from the back of her head.”

 

Chris helped Candy back into her house, and tended to her wound before calling 911.

 

“When we got in the house, she kept telling me I could go but I just said ‘nope, I’m not going anywhere until I know the ambulance is here and they can take care of you.”

 

Candy ended up having a brain bleed, and might of died if she didn’t get to the hospital when she did.

 

Candy stated: “I know that the outcome would have been much, much different had he not acted as he did. He’s the kind of son a person would want. A fine individual.”

 

“She’s calling me her ‘Hero’, says Chris. “She sent me a card thanking me, but she didn’t have to do that. I just did what anyone should of done.”

 

Chris has worked for Randy’s Environmental Services for almost 12 years, and this is the worst incident he has witnessed.

 

Randy’s is very proud to call Chris one of their own. Thank you Chris for being a hero!
