First Aid Kit Comes in Handy

Timothy L. - Nebraska

I have always kept a first aid kit in my car just in case it would someday come in handy.  Last summer, my family and I were driving back home one night when we came up on some motorcycle on the roadside. As we were passing by, my wife tells me that there is someone laying on the ground. At this point there were no emergency vehicles, just a couple of other riders who stopped as well, so I decided to stop and help.  I grabbed the first aid kit not knowing what I was going to see.  This person suffered minor scrapes and bruises when they stopped the bike on the side of the road, parked it, and fell off due to dehydration. Emergency services were called and the person was checked out ok.
