Location: Peterborough Cambridgeshire UK

A few years ago a friend and I were out for a "walk". However as we were both wheelchair users it was no ordinary walk. We were deep in the countryside in a very quiet lane when my friend became tired. As I had an electric wheelchair he held on to mine and I was able to pull him along. What neither of us saw was a big hole in the road. My wheels missed it but his got caught and over he went with the wheelchair on top. "O help" I thought. He was a big man and there was no way I could lift him or help except to nudge his wheelchair off him. Suddenly from nowhere appeared a beat up old car and a man got out, picked David up and made sure we were both OK and offered us a lift back to our car. We declined and while we were checking each other was alright the man disappeared. Neither in his coming or going did we hear the sound of a car motor or see the car coming. It was a sudden appearance and disappearance accompanied by the strongest feeling of wellbeing and safety for us. After we realised we could not see him we looked at each other and said "An angel came to help us". I have never feared a challenging situation since.
