A guy named Derrick Deanda from Elk Grove, California was in his car last month when he saw a van swerve off the road and roll over. And he immediately stopped to help.
And it’s a good thing he did, because a guy and his three kids were trapped inside. Derrick broke a window and helped pull them out safely before the paramedics showed up.
And now, a few weeks later, Derrick got his reward . . . a $143 bill from the city.
It turns out that when Derrick broke the window on the van, he got a small cut on his hand. One of the paramedics took a quick look at it . . . so, BOOM, $143.
Derrick says he’s shocked they charged him for helping save the family. Quote, “I mean, why would I want to stop to help somebody if I’m going to get a bill?”
