Saturday night, our last at the beach, we were in Murrells Inlet for dinner and then a trip to the Marsh Walk for music. Departing Flo's after dinner we immediately noticed driving that one of our tires was low. Quick detour to a gas station on Route 17 and ... we had a flat. We were staying in Myrtle Beach itself, so it would be quite a drive back.

A nice guy stopped with his young son, introduced himself as a Georgetown volunteer firefighter. He said he noticed us pulling across the road with a flat tire. He asked if he could help as he had a tire repair kit in his truck.

Not only did he remove the nail in our tire and fix/plug the hole, but would not accept anything for his help. We "donated" $20 to his son for ice cream money (nice to see the smile on the son's face).

Without his help we would have probably been delayed a day coming home and would have had to call for emergency road assistance.

Such a pleasure to run into nice and caring people. We didn't get his name, but if anyone knows a Georgetown volunteer firefighter that lives in Sandy Plains let him know we are thankful for his kindness.

Also posted this on Trip Advisor in case anyone might know who he is.

wow! Isn't that sweet? This is exaclty why my family wants to move to the MB area. Where we live in MD, no one would dream of helping anyone. I'm so glad someone was nice enough to help you!

What a heart-warming story! Thanks for sharing it with us. And it was very sweet of you to make a donation to the son's ice cream fund! What a perfect way for you to say "thank you."

One of our member's husband is a Georgetown firefighter. I sent her the link to the T/A post. She immediately posted it to Facebook for her firehouse connections to see. As of this afternoon I think they narrowed it down to who the fireman was.

Oh, the power of Facebook! The person who helped us out posted a response on Trip Advisor. Can you believe of all the millions of people in the world one small post and you can find someone within 24 hours! Thanks for the assistance in locating him.

I was sent the following post from trip advisor about an awesome firefighter helping someone out (thanks Alan Smith).I think it maybe someone from Georgetown County Fire but I am unsure who, so I thought I would post it in hopes someone else would recognize who it is and let them know!

Hi, all. The guy that helped us out is Edsel Moore, a Georgetown firefighter and EMT. He posted on Trip Advisor that is was him, and I personally thanked him again.

I don't think he is a big message board/Internet forum type of person. He seems like a very humble guy.
