A toddler having a febrile seizure is a very scary thing. Even though they aren't usually signs of epilepsy or cause long-term damage, the sight of your little one shaking uncontrollably and losing consciousness can freak any parent out. Now imagine that you are alone on the side of the road. That's what happened to Angi Burk Pietzak, a mom of two, recently. Terrified, the Naples, FL, resident held her 2-year-old in her arms. Then she saw a strange man come toward them.
It turned out to be the kindest stranger Pietzak had ever met. His name was Mark and he was the owner of a pizzeria in Naples. "Mark helped me to a parking lot, bought me water, sat with me as I composed myself and waited for Quinn to regain consciousness, then ultimately got us to the hospital," Pietzak posted to the popular Facebook page Love What Matters.
They even went back to his pizzeria to thank him! So great to see such acts of kindness in the world.
