Ti business assists accident victims

To the Times of Ti: Wal-Mart in Ticonderoga donated an infant car seat and a booster seat to a family that was involved in a car accident here in Ticonderoga on Friday, Nov. 23. The accident happened mid-afternoon on NYS Route 74 near Eagle Lake; seven people were taken to Moses Ludington Hospital for various injuries. The vehicle that David Hindsmarsh was driving had three young children in it. Mr. Hindsmarsh along with Lillian Allen, age 7, were transferred to Fletcher Allen Healthcare in Burlington, meanwhile Laurie Allen and her other two children, Joseph Allen, age 4, and Nicholas Hindsmarsh, age 2, were all stranded at Moses Ludington Hospital. Laurie Allens sister was on her way from the Syracuse area to pick them up and head to Burlington to be with her loved ones but needed car seats for the children. Ticonderoga Fire Department Assistant Chief Jeff Burns and I went to the local Wal-Mart and asked for their assistance. They were very quick to respond to our needs and told us to go get what we needed and come back to them. We picked out the seats we needed and they took care of the rest. We returned to the hospital and presented Ms. Allen with the two seats and she and her children were very surprised and excited that this had been done for them. On behalf of Assistant Chief Burns, myself and the whole Ticonderoga Fire Department we extend our deepest appreciation to Wal-Mart for their generosity. It is certainly comforting to know that when people are in need that there are businesses here to help them out. Matthew Watts
