Good Samaritans came to my rescue

I would like to thank all the angels who stopped and helped me on Monday, March 9. I was on my way to Red Deer that morning and as I got closer, the roads got worse with ice and it was very cold. I was thinking I should put my vehicle in 4x4 when the next thing I knew I was heading for the ditch on the other side of the road. My vehicle flipped onto the passenger side, then the roof. I was able to turn off my Suzuki Grand Vitara and get the window down but unable to get my seatbelt undone. After about 10 to 15 minutes of waving my hand out the window, I looked over and heard a man asking if I was all right. He undid my seatbelt and then helped my out of my car, through the window. I was very shaken up but not hurt. I would like to thank Sylvan Lake’s Rob Valle — I hope I spelled his name right) — for undoing my seatbelt and helping me over to a van owned by the Osborns from Delburne. Valle and the other gentleman with him collected my things and made sure I was fine. Another lady from Delburne (I didn’t get her name) called 911 and stayed with me until the police arrived. Thank you to her. And to the Osborns in Delburne, I can’t thank you enough. You stopped and let me stay warm in your van and offered to drive me all the way home, if needed. To all the emergency people who came out on that frightful day to see if I was OK, thank you. To Glen Little, who ended taking me home in Delburne and driving even slower than needed just so I would feel OK, thank you. A lot of angels out that day and to everyone who stopped: thank you.
