THeRe'S An AnGeL On My ShOuLdEr...
Thursday, February 12, 2004
I read alot of material on a day-to-day basis that challenges ones faith in humanity. It can be quite depressing & distressing at times & it becomes a challenge to keep everything in perspective. But stories like this one restore my faith somewhat.
Last Saturday a 12-year-old Intellectually impaired boy from Hectorville was allegedly
robbed at knifepoint of his brand new bike by 3 youths. The boy although not hurt was devastated as he had bought the bike himself after collecting empty bottles and cans over a couple of years. Norwood Police investigated the incident and yesterday managed to locate the offenders and recover the bike. Unfortunately the bike had been stripped down of many of its markings and looked nothing like the brand new bike. Police approached Kmart Firle where the bike purchased from to see if they could replace the missing parts. The Manager of Kmart on hearing the story and finding out parts could not be replaced went one better and replaced the bike with a brand new one. We are pleased to say that the 12-year-old victim was absolutely thrilled with is brand new bike and it is good to have a happy ending to the whole incident.
Awwwwww...wasn't that nice of them?
