WALLSEND, U.K.– A car salesman came to the rescue of an elderly woman who accidentally called a car dealership looking for help.

When the 80-year-old woman called the BMW dealership in the U.K., Dang Vuong took her call, according to TODAY.

The woman had slipped in her bathroom and had meant to call her daughter, but she got two digits wrong and reached the dealership.

Vuong drove to her home, helped clean her cut, and waited with her until a family member arrived.  Vuong told TODAY, “I’ve been brought up to help people, especially my elders… I felt like I had to go and help because I couldn’t live with myself if something happened to her and I didn’t even try. If it were my grandparent, how would I feel if she was left alone?”

The woman’s granddaughter was so grateful, she posted a thank you message to Vuong on her Facebook page:

“I would like to say a massive thank you to the manager at BMW Silverlink for helping my nana today. After falling in her house this morning she tried ringing my Mam, however, she got 2 digits wrong which lead to her ringing BMW. The manager got in his car and went straight to her house where he found her on the floor and her bath which was almost ready to overflow. He picked her up and cleaned her mouth which was cut and was able to contact us through her Mobile while he stayed with her until my Mam got there. We can’t thank him enough for what he done for her, there really is some caring and thoughtful people out there that don’t get recognised for what the do. Hopefully someone will see this that knows him and he can see how grateful we are! I will be calling in to thank him in person too. Feel free to share this post”
