I am asking for your help in finding a family from Saco, Maine:
On November 30th, 2008 my partner and I were driving Southbound on an icy I- 89 near White River Junction, VT when we came across an accident scene involving a rolled over SUV that was upside-down and off the road. When we approached the accident scene, I immediately pulled over to help.
Inside the vehicle was a family – a father, mother, and their infant daughter – who had been driving home to Saco, ME from a Thanksgiving in VT.
Thankfully, all three passengers had been wearing safety restraints when the accident occurred. When I arrived on the scene, the infant and mother were still in the over-turned vehicle, belted into their seats and upside-down.
As it became more and more evident that help would not be arriving soon (there were 6 reported accidents before this one), strangers came together to help the Saco family through a very dangerous and serious time.
With a doctor who had arrived on scene, I helped guide the infant and mother out of the vehicle. I also gave the father my winter coat when he started to shiver and helped him bandage a cut on his hand with a t-shirt from my trunk. Someone set a road flare. Another person gave the family an unzipped sleeping bag to wear on their shoulders. The father of a UVM student helped me direct traffic. The doctor assessed the victims and played an integral role in keeping the family safe and calm. About 8 strangers came together that day to help the family from Saco, ME.
When an ambulance finally came, I gave the father a hug and told him I wished his family health and happiness.
I am asking for your help in finding this Saco, ME family to make sure they’re together – happy and healthy – for the holidays. I would love to send the Saco Family a Christmas card and present for their baby!
While I didn’t get the family’s last name, I do remember the following details:
1. The mom graduated from UVM and is blonde
2. The dad’s name is Kevin
3. The baby was calmed down by a soft baby book that had family photos in it
Any help you or your organization can offer is appreciated – I am willing to discuss this story further with reporters, do interviews, etc…whatever it takes to get my Christmas card to Kevin.
Thank you,
