An Australian ambulance paramedic trainee found a parking ticket dropped in the vehicle by a family whose mother died three days later.
Marc Primrose sympathized with the grief the daughter must be feeling and instead of returning the ticket to Rosemary Morgan, he paid the $129 fine for her.
He contacted them at the address on the ticket lest they worry about late fines, and sent this note:
Dear Rose and Family, I found this in the back of the ambulance after we dropped you and your mother at home from the Broadmeadows Hospital on Tuesday afternoon. I didn’t want you to incur a late fee from this parking fine so I’m posting this back to you. I also decided to pay this fine for you given the difficult time you and your family are going through.
