Youngster a good samaritan

I received a good samaritan hand from a young Marshalltown lad last week. I was returning a collapsible wheelchair for a friend who lives in the 400 block of West Main in Marshalltown. If you have ever tried to move a collapsible wheelchair, you know they are very unwieldy. A young lad about 9 or 10 was going by on his scooter, dropped it and ran up to help me. The two of us were able to easily lift it into my trunk.

The boy was very helpful and he was not shy about offering his help. I hope the parents of this lad read this. You have raised a fine son who showed by his actions that he is a good samaritan!
