A Good Samaritan is a praised hero after rescuing a 78-year-old woman who was broken off on the way back from a hospital appointment and told that she had brain cancer.

Sam Altakrity, owner of Superb Civil Group in Revesby, southwestern Sydney, was driving down Canterbury Road when he saw Lavina Martin in her car with her head in her hands.

The grandmother had just been told that she had brain cancer before Mr. Altakrity found her last week.

And in a remarkable friendly act, Sam managed to drag her car to a mechanic for free before giving her a huge bouquet of red roses.

Sam said, “I saw that she had her face in her hands, that was heartbreaking, so I stopped behind her, invited her into my car so she could sit in the air conditioning, took some water and called my mechanic.

“The engineer discovered the fuel pump had disappeared, so I bought one and the engineer went to collect it before installing it.”

Altakrity stayed with Lavina for almost four and a half hours while the mechanic collected the fuel pump needed to repair her car.

He said, “I’d like to think someone would help my parents in the same situation, so I just did what I could to help.”

Lavina said that many motorists were driving past her and squeaking their horns and only Sam had stopped to help.

She said: “Sam is one in a million.

“When I got the car back, it was detailed and it now looks like a new car and it wouldn’t pay a cent for the repairs.”
