Stranded and Struggling: How Generous Teens Saved the Day for a Woman with a Broken-Down Car

Being an Angel Without Wings

There⁤ are times when being an ⁢angel doesn’t require a ‌pair of wings, ‌but rather a strong set of legs and a willingness to lend a helping hand. In a world where negative news can often overshadow the⁢ good, it’s important to remember that there are still moments of ⁤kindness and heroism that shine through the darkness.


One such moment was captured by Dan Morrison, who shared a heartwarming story ⁤of three teenagers ‍who restored people’s faith in‌ humanity with a⁢ simple act of kindness.

A Stranded Driver in Need

Morrison was driving when he noticed a ​car stranded in the middle ​of an intersection. He could see smoke coming from the ‌car and knew that​ the driver was⁢ in trouble. He slowed down to check on the driver and found out ⁤that her car had ​broken down just six weeks after she had purchased ⁤it. The engine coolant had leaked and mixed ⁤with the​ oil, making the car too dangerous to drive.


Three Unexpected Heroes

As Morrison was trying to figure out the best course of action,⁢ three teenagers – Aeron McQuillin, Bailey Campbell, and Billy Tarbett⁣ – happened to pass ‍by. They were on ​their way to get some‌ late-night snacks when they saw the commotion and decided to lend a⁣ hand.

The woman had ‌no money to pay for towing services and was miles away from home with no nearby garages. The boys quickly came up with a plan to push the car to​ the⁣ woman’s house, which was five miles away.

A Push to ⁢Remember

The boys didn’t ⁢just push the car to the side of the road, but⁢ rather ‌all the way to the​ woman’s house. They even​ brought bottles of water and a speaker to keep themselves entertained during the hour and⁣ a half journey. Morrison drove behind them with his ‍hazard lights‌ on to protect the boys.

The journey ⁤was not⁣ without its challenges, including⁤ a big hill and a dead​ battery at one point. But the boys persevered ⁤and⁢ eventually made it to the woman’s house.

A Ripple Effect of Kindness

The woman was overwhelmed with gratitude and amazement that three young boys⁢ had pushed her car for five miles. The next ​day, the boys’ Facebook accounts were flooded with messages of appreciation. But for⁤ them, ​the most important thing was that they were able to‌ make a positive impact and inspire others to do the same.

Morrison ‍summed it up perfectly when he said, “There is so much negativity in the world;⁤ people want something positive. When something ⁤like this happens, it becomes ⁤contagious.‌ Everyone has had car problems and can relate.”

So let’s remember⁤ that we don’t need wings to be angels. Sometimes, ‍all it takes is a little⁤ bit of ​elbow grease ‍and a willingness to lend a helping hand. Share this story with your friends and family to spread the message of ​kindness and positivity.
