The term “Good Samaritan” is often used to refer to a person who performs a kind gesture for a stranger.
It’s actually a reference to a story told by Jesus in the Bible. In the story, a Jewish man is beaten and lies near death on the side of the road. Two of the Jews’ highest regarded peoples pass by and ignore him, while a Samaritan, a hated neighbor of the Jews, stops and lends aid.
This story of the “Good Samaritan” has become our example for doing the right thing when others won’t.
Such a situation occurred on Friday, June 7th 2019.
Two of Precision Temperature’s installers, Kyle and Anthony, were returning from a job in Jamul when they came across a devastating accident.
ABC 10 News reporter Mackenzie Maynard visited with us to get the full story. Check out the video that aired on Friday, June 14th:
Where most cars drove right on past, Kyle and Anthony pulled over and ran to lend aid where he could.
Discovering that one of the cars was on fire while a driver was trapped inside, Kyle ran and grabbed the truck’s fire extinguisher and didn’t hesitate to jump into the fray.
When directly questioned about the event, Kyle deflected praise stating he only did what he hoped someone else would do for him.
Kyle and Anthony have demonstrated integrity and excellence time and again, not only in their work, but also in their personal lives as well.
Here at Precision Temperature, we’re proud to call them part of our family.
