Kudos and thanks to Vincent Seals. It's nice to know there are people like this that are willing to do the right thing and save someone's life.

What a terrific story. It is very heartening to know there are Good Samaritans out there who are willing to step in to help a stranger even though, in today's litigious climate, they risk being sued for their efforts. Mr. Rogers would be very proud of Mr. Seals! Such a wonderful coincidence that he was there to help even though Dublin/Pleasanton is not his normal post. Given the great example he has set, I sure hope he receives the recognition he deserves.
