Teens Had No Clue Who Was Right Inside As They Helped Shovel Outside

A small group of LaSalle were in for a shock when they took advantage of an opportunity to shovel snow and earn some extra income. Cody, and his friends, Rebecca, Marcello, and Jerry sought out to make the most of the eight inches of snow they’d received overnight. The group of four decided to knock on some doors to see if anyone wanted their snow shoveled. None of them were prepared for the events that would transpire when they knocked on the final door.

When Cody knocked on the door, he was alarmed to hear someone screaming out in pain. He reported feeling as though he was in a worthless situation, due to his inability to enter the gentleman’s house to provide aid. According to Cody, the man had fallen down and been writhing in pain for days. All of the children were terribly shaken by the alarming situation. It is not something one witnesses everyday. Rebecca was in shock, and Jerry detailed it as something “scary” that you do not expect. The man’s locked door obstructed the friends from going into the house to help him, so Rebecca called the police and paramedics arrived immediately.

“You could clearly see he was in pain,” reports fireman, Zach Hill. “This gentleman had been there for, we're not sure how long, and we don't know how long he would've been there had they not knocked on the door so they had a huge part in getting him help,” he continued. Hill and the other responders on the scene immediately rushed the man to the hospital. The team was unable to diagnose or treat any of the man’s injuries, but they did perform vitals on him.

The LaSalle police chief corroborated the story of the four teenagers, with Cody adding, “Something told me that he needed me and he needed us.” The fate of the gentleman is unknown. The firefighters were no longer in the position to care for him once he arrived at the hospital.
