The other night we had a family dining. The parents live on the coast and were visiting so all came to dine with us here in Derry. Not long into their dinner course the dad/grandfather began to choke. A nearby table took notice and jumped to his aid. Despite apparently purging what was stuck the gentlemen was uncomfortable so he began walking away. The man that intervened happened to be an officer and escorted him outside where he laid him down after becoming visibly short of breath, losing a moment of consciousness and kept him safe while we waited for EMS to arrive. It wasn’t until he was on the ambulance that he joined his family and finished dining. The family was so grateful that they wanted to buy his family’s dinner. Instead, we took care of the them ourselves and thanked him for being so alert, responsive and selfless. They humbly accepted the offer and will absolutely keep moving kindness forward with the RAK certificate.
