Wabash Valley Woman Thanks Good Samaritan Stranger

On Saturday, Bradley, a photographer, pulled over on S.R. 246 to snap a picture, when her shoes sank in the mud. As she walked barefoot, back to her car she noticed a woman had pulled over to see what was going on.
On Saturday a Wabash Valley woman had a life-changing experience on the side of the road, after a stranger did something almost unimaginable.

For Virginia Bradley, Saturday was just supposed to be about shopping - but it turned in to something she'll now remember for the rest of her life.

They say you don't really know someone until you've walked a mile in their shoes... but for Virginia Bradley that doesn't even begin to cover it.

On Saturday, Bradley, a photographer, pulled over on State Road 246 to snap a picture, when her shoes sank in the mud. As she walked barefoot back to her car, she noticed a woman had pulled over to see what was going on.
   
"I was just amazed. I was really just amazed. I mean, I thought it was wonderful that she actually stopped to help me. I thought that that was a wonderful thing," she said.

Bradley is still recovering from breast cancer surgery, and she couldn't reach her shoes and feet to clean them off.
   
That's when the unknown Good Samaritan - just Colleen - stepped in.

"When I told her that, she took some rags out of her truck... and she washed my feet on the side of the road there," said Bradley. "There's only a couple of other people that I can think of that have done that, and they're Jesus Christ and Ghandi. And now it's Colleen on the side of 246."

Bradley says it's moments like these that remind us just how important it is to help those in need.

"If we can only hang on to the fact that there are people like Colleen out on the roads. Our neighbors, people we walk by every single day, that are willing to do something good. We gotta hold on to that. That's what's important," said Bradley.

Because even after literally taking a few wrong steps, Colleen was able to help put Bradley back on track.
   
"It was one of the most beautiful things that's ever happened to me. Honestly. Honestly, it's amazing. You don't see things like that," said Bradley.

Bradley says she only knows Colleen's first name, and she just wants to send out another big thank you.
   
She also hopes this encourages everyone to pay it forward.
