A mother from Albuquerque, Maria Arriaga, had car trouble on the way home, even policemen wouldn’t stop to help her.
She then thought that she’d have to wait by herself to get help. Luckily a teen, whom calls an “angel” in her post on Facebook’s Love What Matters page — showed up to save the day.
The mother planned on making a quick stop at home before picking up her daughter from Atrisco Heritage Academy High School. But, unfortunately, her car stopped responding.
Joseph Tapia, a high school student, who ended up saving her day.
Maria shares on Facebook’s Love What matters page:
I was 10 minutes from getting home when my car died on me on Unser and Dennis Chavez. I senior from Atrisco was the only one that stopped and helped. Not even a cop stopped when they saw him push my car all by himself.
To top it off it was raining like crazy. He checked my car and told me, “Get in your car so you won’t get wet.” I told him someone was on their way to help me but that I was going to get in to call my daughter because she was about to get out of practice.
His response was, “Take my car and pick her up so she won’t get wet while waiting for you.” It started raining harder and I rolled my window down and told him, “Please go in your car or you can leave leave I will be okay.”
He said, “No, I will wait here outside and wait for someone to come, and I don’t want to leave you alone with your kids. Also, it’s just water.” He waited almost an hour with me. His name is Joseph Tapia.
GOD Bless this young man for helping when he didn’t have to, He was my angel today! Please share so all of Albuquerque knows we do have kind, helpful young men, and Angels! Joseph Tapia!!
It’s incredible that Joseph offered to wait for that long, and even more so that it was in the rain.
