I recently suffered a medical emergency while in the checkout line at Walmart on Union Avenue.
Someone recognized I needed help and suddenly a woman came up from behind to get me on the floor. She stayed there comforting me while we waited for the paramedics.
In addition, I had my 7-year-old grandson with me. Someone appeared and stayed with him, entertaining him while the paramedics did their assessment and got me ready to go to the hospital.
There were also a couple of others who made sure everything ran smoothly.

Walmart is frequently in the news being accused of one thing or another. My accusation is that they are a well trained group of people that saved my life. I wish to thank you all.
