This is a story of a lady having a hard time, who then through bad luck looked set to have to deal with a life that had just gotten more complicated if not harder. Bit then in her time of need she was given a gift of help and then gave back a gift of gratitude.
Lorraine Katzburg of Staten Island has been coping with incurable lung disease and recently also had neck surgery following a car accident. Life has indeed been tough.
And then things looked set to become plain disagreeable and horrid when she dropped her key ring down through a grate as she was getting out of her car. Bang goes car keys, house keys the lot….we all know that sinking feeling.
Fortunately a passerby had noticed a fire truck nearby and alerted her. She asked those firefighters for help and boy did they give it.
They fashioned a hook small enough to pick up the keys and fit down through the grate and in short order had them returned to her.
Lorraine was so grateful she was not going to let it rest there. The next day , see the video, she turned up at the Port Richmond Fire House with small gifts for her helpers and her heartfelt thanks.
New York city is a wonderful place at Christmas time and all the time, because New Yorkers live the gift of giving at all times. Have a great Christmas everypne.
