Watchful Neighbors may have Saved Elderly Woman Home Alone

by Placerville Newswire / Feb 10, 2016 / comments

"What a great example of consideration and human kindness," writes the El Dorado County Sheriff's Office. 

"Maryann and Michael live across the street from an elderly woman who lives alone. Today they noticed that the neighbor's window coverings weren't open like they usually are when the neighbor is home. Knowing the neighbor was home, Maryann walked across the street and looked in windows and knocked on doors, but her neighbor did not respond. The neighbor didn't answer her phone either. Fearing the worst, Maryann called EDSO to check on her neighbor."
