On Sunday, after snow walloped the Milwaukee area, one resident of Greenfield suffered a cardiac emergency while attempting to shovel 12 inches of heavy snow from his driveway.
Paramedics took the man to the hospital, but then hatched a plan in the fire station to return and finish shoveling.
The Greenfield Fire Department posted this photo on their Facebook page and wanted the kindness to spread. They started a hashtag, #ShovelItForward, encouraging others to pitch in for those who may need help dealing with heavy snow.
The man’s daughter told WISN-TV, “They just saw that somebody needed help, and they took time out of their day and their busy schedules to do something like that. It’s amazing. It’s awesome.”
