Two KPHS staff members come to the rescue of local woman

I wanted to take this opportunity to publicly recognize two of your employees whose devotion and humanity saved a life. On May 16, 2017, sometime after 3:00 P.M. my wife, Deborah Watts went to run an errand at the Neighborhood Market on Northpark Drive in Kingwood. My wife is a diabetic. Despite checking her blood sugar earlier that day, two of your employees found my wife collapsed and unresponsive in her vehicle in the parking lot sometime around 4:00 P.M. I received a call from my wife’s cell phone at 4:03 P.M. I was advised that my wife was unresponsive and she was at the Neighborhood Market in Kingwood and that an ambulance had already been called for her. I was on my way home from work and immediately started heading towards the Neighborhood Market. Your employees called an ambulance for my wife and most likely saved her life. I was advised by medics from the Houston Fire Department that her blood sugar had plummeted to 32 when they tested it. My wife does not remember anything after arriving to run her errand, just that she woke up in an ambulance. There is no telling how long she had been there before your two employees noticed her.


Your two employees waited until I arrived to make sure that my wife, her vehicle, and her belongings were safe until I arrived. Your two employees did not have to go to this trouble. I realize that they were most likely very busy and had their own families to get home to. Words cannot express the eternal gratitude I will have for these two ladies who happened to be at the right place at the right time. Unfortunately, I did not catch their names, but I did see they had Humble I.S.D. identification badges on their shirt. One of them said they were a school nurse. We all have that someone in the world that means the most to them, for me that is my wife, we have been married for 28 years and I do not know what I would do without her.


If you could go to the trouble to locate these two employees and let them know that words can not express my sincerest gratitude and thanks I would be most grateful.
