It is very likely that the quick action taken by Mireya saved his life, and he is expected to fully recover. Now it's late on a Friday af- ternoon and my company has a locked vehicle parked in front of a gas pump 1650 miles away. It's still parked in front of the pumps because the key to the vehicle is with our guy, who by now is at the hospital in Silver City. Even though Mireya assured me that it was not an inconvenience, I started calling towing companies in the area. When I called Smith Ford in Lordsburg and explained our situation, the service man- ager, Rudy, was awesome• He immediately dispatched a tow truck and driver (sorxy...I don't know his name!) to the service station and picked up our vehicle.
