It was an ordinary day on the job for car sales manager Dang Vuong, until he got quite a scary phone call. It was from an elderly woman--and she was in distress.
The grandmother had meant to call her daughter to ask for help after slipping and falling while running a bath. But she misdialed and reached Vuong instead.
"She called our landline and got through to our receptionist, who asked me what to do," Vuong said. "I said, I’ll go and make sure she’s OK--at first I thought she was just across the road, it turned out she was about two miles away. I drove over there while our receptionist kept her talking on the phone."
By the time Vuong got to the house, he found the woman, still in shock by what had happened. There was blood on her face, and the bath was overflowing.
"I told her who I was and then scooped her up and put her on the sofa and covered her with a blanket and waited until her carers and family came," Vuong said.
The woman's granddaughter, Sara Tweedy, said if it weren't for the kind salesman's help, it would have at least been a couple of hours before anyone discovered her. But Vuong is modest about his good deed.
"I would have thought anyone would have done the same, especially with her being an old lady," Vuong said. "I didn’t even think about doing anything else."
