When a crew of emergency responders was between calls and saw a potentially dangerous situation in Waco, Texas, they stepped in to help. The EMTs spotted 98-year-old Margaret Durham mowing her lawn, and it’s something she usually does, but they decided to lend her a hand.
“She’s elderly and looked exhausted, she was in a dangerous slope of the yard, possibly could fall and lose control of the lawn mower and injure herself,” explains one of the responders. “The need for us to intervene was there.”
The EMTs don’t feel they were doing anything extraordinary by assisting Durham with the lawn. “Our job here is for us to help people and that’s what we like doing,” another responder explains. “That’s why we’re called to do what we do.”
