At the Remembrance Day ceremonies downtown St.Albert as we were watching the ceremonies my grandson passed out and fell on the ground. There was no warning or signs this might happen and he is a completely healthy 13-year-old boy, very active in sports with no health issues. 
Within seconds two people were there both stating they were registered nurses and attending to my grandson. One wonderful lady in military uniform stayed there the whole time caring for him while a gentleman immediately called for an ambulance, talking with the EMT's about my grandson's condition and giving them accurate directions for his location. 
A policeman was near that corner for traffic control and rushed over to offer assistance. He talked with me to keep me calm as he directed the ambulance in and waited for my grandsons mom to get there and did the same for her.
Everything turned out fine, apparently this is a fairly common situation and after being thoroughly checked over by the EMT's my grandson was released.
All i can say is THANK YOU ALL. Unfortunately I don't know who you are but you do.
In this sometimes non-caring world it was beyond exceptional the way you all pitched in and helped. I hope this letter somehow finds it's way to you all.
Thank you so much.

Don Elliott, St. Albert
