A Great Big Thank You to the staff at the Equestrian facility for their unhesitating actions that no doubt save the bicyclists life.
With all the endless bickering commonly seen on the Almanac between outdoor recreational groups around here, this article showcases, to me, that were all in it together and helping each other out is where it's at.

Nice to know that people help people in need of help, even if they do not know them. Good that the person was taken to the hospital rather than home. A big thank you to Mr. Gimple for caring enough to help a stranger in need!

I'm so happy to read that this story had a happy ending! It's wonderful to read that Mr. Berman is recovering now.
Years ago, I was near the Dish when I came across a man of similar age & in similar distress. I got him to my car & took him to the ER. Luckily, we arrived in time for the experts to help him survive his heart attack. After he recovered, I was treated to a lovely dinner at his house & also received a wonderful bottle of wine. But this is the kicker: If my dog hadn't barked a greeting, I may never have noticed him under a tree in the shade.
It's always better to assume the worst & head to the ER & be able to breathe a sigh of relief.
