This woman was volunteering during the lockdown and saved a man suffering from breathlessness

This uplifting news come to us from Cambridgeshire, United Kingdom.

Amanda Hellman, 50, who runs a motorcycle training school is up to good charity amidst the gloomy lockdown period. She is volunteering for around 10 to 12 hours each day and helping people by delivering prescriptions.

When she was outside a man’s house in Cambridgeshire, she heard a knock on the window. When she turned, she saw a man gasping for breath and he called for help. She quickly entered the house via the backdoor which was open.

She found the man (unnamed) feeling distressed and she didn’t even want to imagine what would have happened to him if he was left unattended any further. She also asked him as to why was he waiting so long to which he replied “everybody’s too busy at the moment”. He also mentioned that he was waiting for oxygen and it had already been 2 days that he was suffering but the oxygen was not delivered.

She immediately made phone calls and a team arrived to take the man to a hospital. After the incident, Amanda feels it is extremely important to keep checking on people who are living alone and in self isolation. She was disturbed to see that there are people who feel everybody is busy and no one would turn up for helping.

Even after potentially saving the man’s life, Amanda does not feel that she has done something great. She opined that it was a normal thing to do that anyone else would have done seeing the man’s condition.

It feels great to see people like Amanda who take drastic measures for the society. Risking her life and exposing herself in the open is not something that people can easily do. Hats off to Amanda!
