911 lends wedding dress, saves the day

Friday, August 16, 2013by  Jon Osterberg

Woman has wedding dress stolen from carJohn Keister and the old “Almost Live” troupe enjoyed poking fun at Kent and Auburn in the Seattle TV show’s heyday. Yet a bittersweet story in today’s news both underscores and refutes their stereotype.

A woman named Amanda, 23, phoned 911 in a panic after her wedding dress was stolen out of her car in Kent. Typical of a Kent white-trash satire, right?

Worse, the theft happened on the day of Amanda’s wedding.

But happily for Amanda, the 911 dispatcher – Candice, 28 – felt compassion. She asked Amanda her dress size; it coincidentally matched hers, and she offered to lend Amanda her own wedding gown that she'd worn a year and a half earlier.

Watch the Good Morning America video clip to learn the details about what turned out to be a very happy ending.

This is the coolest news I've read this month. I hope every 911 assistant esp. girls have the same compassion with Candice. I will look up to this thought, I personally managed my boutique  <a href="http://www.walk-in-wardrobe.co.uk" rel="nofollow">http://www.walk-in-wardrobe.co.uk</a> specializing gowns but I only lend gowns to my closest friends. Anyway, the wedding dress looks very nice did Amanda invite Candice on her wedding celebration? This could be a bridge to a good friendship. :-)
