Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

Pressed Down

A new stock of refrigerators had come and so we had been called to carry them and take them into the supermarket when by badluck I hit my feet on a staircase, stumbled and fell on the floor of the staircase. The whole fridge landed on me heavilly and pressed me so hard to the extend that I became confused and lost my conscience. Thanks to Fred my friend who came to my rescue and removed the fridge from me. He did some first aid on me and after a few minutes I regained my conscience and after I had rested for some thirty minutes I continue with my job.
