Helping hand after a fall


To the Editor:

My husband and I visited his mother over the holidays for almost a week. On our last day, before heading back to Boston, we stopped at the Black Dog Bakery near the ferry. When we walked out of the store heading back to the ferry, I fell down when my foot caught in a huge hole in the sidewalk. Three people who were coming out of the bakery saw me fall to the ground. They were so kind to come over to see if I was okay, and then they helped my husband help me up.

I would like to say thank you very much to those who helped me, and I would also like to thank Lauren Weaver, who I didn’t know at the time and who works at Martha’s Vineyard Hospital as a physical therapist. And now I am recovering from the fall.

So this doesn’t happen again to anyone else, the hole should be fixed.
