According to his family, one older Hudson Valley resident recently had a major seizure in the Hannaford parking lot in Valatie, but a young 16 or 17 year-old named Hunter stepped right in. Hunter reportedly started talking to the man, put the car in park, took the key out, and was there for the man in so many ways. Hunter was also able to talk to the man and let him know that help was on the way, how amazing is that?. Hunter was there to help until the EMT's were able to get there and take over. Anyone who has been in the situation knows it's terrifying. Hunter even took it.a step further...he exchanged numbers with the man's wife and is planning on calling the family to check on him.

In a world where people are so focused on themselves and can be so nasty, it's so refreshing to hear that a young man would step right in with no questions asked and help out someone who needs it. Thank you Hunter for reminding us that there are still good people in the world and showing us a much needed lesson on compassion.

If you know Hunter, go up to him and shake his hand.
