Man Searching For His ‘Guardian Angel’ After Recovering From Motorcycle Crash
ORANGE COUNTY, Florida. – An Orange County man seriously injured in a motorcycle accident is on a mission to find the person he believes saved his life. Rakesh Bholasing said he was driving home one evening when he drove down National Highway 408.
The scene still haunts his wife, Hema Rupnarain. “Every night I had to drive home from the hospital, I had to drive past the scene of the accident,” Rupnarain said.
Rakesh was rushed to hospital with a head injury, broken ribs and a broken shoulder. They were told that a man, possibly an off-duty police officer, had stopped traffic so no cars could hit Rakesh, called 911 and stayed with him until paramedics arrived. The family has no idea who he is but now wants to find him to say thank you.
“I really want to say from the bottom of my heart, thank you so much for stopping by,” Bholasing said.
Rakesh speaks fondly of this, feeling lucky to be recovering now at home with his wife and young daughters.
“I don’t know what would have happened to me, my wife and kids wouldn’t know what happened to me, and he’s been a big part of my life now,” Bholasing said.
“He’s the reason we have him at home as a husband and father to our two little girls,” Rupnarain said.
The accident happened in February. Florida Highway Patrol investigated but had no information on the identity of this person.
