Angel Edwards: Thanks to bystander, Modesto police officer for helping my son

December 19, 2013 

Thank you to the woman who hailed a Modesto police officer to help my son when his wheelchair tipped over, spilling him onto the road in downtown Modesto. Thank you, too, to Officer Ben Kroutil, who picked him up, put him back into his chair and waited with him until I got there.

Thank you both very, very much.
