Special story

It was Jennifer West and her Mother, Edith Ogle, from Columbia who were the women who stopped and helped the children at the accident site. Click here to read the accident report.

A thank-you letter came to hoping to connect with and acknowledge the "good samaritans", however, it turned out not to be those folks.

A note was posted that the good samaritans were a mystery and a call went out for those who deserved thanks.

Tonight we heard from a mother and daughter who shared that it was them, but they don't need any special thanks because, "a lot of other people helped as well."

Jennifer said she just guided the girls to her Mom's car where they sat with them, prayed with them for their family and all involved in the accident. They did what they could to comfort the children.

Jennifer later took the gift bags to the hospital but she said again that they didn't need any thanks, "we were just helping others." Comments re article 91445 Names of Good Samaritans now a mystery
