Cab Driver Helps Elderly Couple in Need


Nick Good is a cab driver in Dorset, England. He was about to pick up a customer in Salwayash, England, around midnight when a woman called for help, running out of her house.

Lynda Wells’ husband, Tom, fell out of bed in the middle of the night. He is 88 years old and has advanced Alzheimer’s disease. Mrs. Wells, 71, heard her husband fall out of bed in the next room, but after 20 minutes of trying, she wasn’t able to lift him off the floor.

Wells didn’t see any lights on in the nearby homes outside, and she was about to call an ambulance, until she saw some headlights coming down her road. She approached Good asking if he would come inside to help her, and Good agreed. They both went to the room and were able to help her husband back into bed.

Wells didn’t have the time to ask the driver his name before they went their separate ways, but luckily, they managed to connect through social media. Wells brought a bottle of wine to Good to say thank you.

“I am so lucky that Nick just happened to be driving down the road at that very moment and was kind enough to put his face mask on and come inside and help me – it was like an angel appearing,” Wells told the Bridport News. “I am so pleased that I was able to connect with him on Facebook so I could take him a gift to say thank you.”

Good said he was more than happy to help Wells because he had experienced something similar with his father. “She sent me a message on Facebook saying she wanted to drop something round and that was so kind of her, she really didn’t need to – I was more than happy to help.”
