SANDY, Utah (ABC 4 Utah) – Sandy City firefighters responded to an emergency but left the elderly couple involved with much more than urgent care.
For the past month, a perfectly placed painting has hung in John and Marge Coffman’s Sandy home.
“I don’t even think it’s off an inch!” Marge said.
The special oil canvas is a family heirloom, but it is the unique tale of hanging the art the owners cherish most. Marge and her husband John pulled the painting out of their closet in October.
“We started with the hanging… it was just kind of like a fluke!” Marge explained.
“I had my end of the picture fastened, and I reached off this little small stool to help [Marge] because she’s rather short, and I reached over, and that’s all I remember,” John added.
John had slipped off the stool he was standing on, falling backwards onto the coffee table below. Marge says she could not bring her husband to consciousness so quickly called for help. Emergency crews rushed her husband away, leaving her behind.
“I kissed him ‘goodbye…’” Marge remembered.
…but just when Marge thought she was all alone, two on-duty firefighters re-entered her garage and pulled some old wire out of a toolbox.
“They picked it up and unwrapped it and started hanging the picture…” Marge recalled. “They said, ‘Is that were you want it?’” she said.
Then Marge watched, as the public servants went to work. She says she felt an overwhelming feeling of gratitude but that everything happened extremely fast.
“I didn’t catch their names… I didn’t ask,” Marge said.
After tending to her husband’s spinal cord injuries for a full month, Marge asked Good 4 Utah to help track those firefighters down. The four had a happy reunion, complete with plenty of cake and plenty of appreciation.
“I’ll be indebted to them for the rest of my life!” John explained.
The ‘Good 4 Utah firefighters’ say they were simply doing their jobs.
“Every once in awhile, you see an extra bit that you can do, and we do what we can,” said Capt. Ryan McConaghie, with Sandy City.
The Coffmans, on the other hand, claim they will remember that act of kindness as long as the painting hangs in their home.
“I think it’ll stay there as long as we do!” Marge laughed.
