Saved by a police chaplain

I was recently involved in a motor vehicle accident when an oncoming vehicle slammed into the door of my car (driver's side) and left me unconscious and my daughter injured.

I barely regained consciousness when a chaplain of the Jamaica Constabulary Force (Pastor Robert Rose) was just in time to assist me from my vehicle, ministered to my daughter and I, and took us to the Accident and Emergency Unit of the University Hospital of the West Indies.

Despite being on his way to work, he did not only divert to take us to the hospital, but called several times throughout the day, and even after we were discharged from hospital, to enquire of our condition and ensure that we were okay.

This gentleman displayed great care and kindness and indicated that all that he did was what was to be expected.

I wish to publicly say thank you to Pastor Rose for his invaluable support and trust that many of us would learn from this deed of kindness instead of destroying or killing one another.
