Fayetteville woman thanks good Samaritan who helped pull her car out of the snow
CICERO, N.Y. —
A Fayetteville woman is thanking a Burdick Toyota employee after he stopped to help when her car got stuck in the snowy whiteout conditions earlier this week.
Rebecca Lerman said she was on her way to the post office after leaving work when she drove into a pile of snow and got stuck. That’s when Alexander Shumway jumped out of his car to help. He used tow-ropes that he had in his car to help pull Lerman’s car out.
“Just so blessed and grateful, the act of kindness, you don't see that, and a young gentleman pulling over to help out,” said Lerman.
Friday, Lerman went to see Shumway at work in Driver’s Village to thank him for his kindness.
She wrote a letter for Shumway saying how thankful she is, as well as gifting him four Syracuse crunch tickets and a gift card.
“I really wasn't expecting anything in return,” said Shumway. “I was just going to do it and get back out on my way out to see a friend, and I really appreciate it cause I didn't want anything in return at all.”
Lerman also surprised Shumway with a new tow rope.
“So we’re both under the car on our hands and knees trying to figure out where we were going to put the tow rope. So of course I had to buy you a new one,” said Lerman.
