House fire rescue leads to a stolen car??

Main image
  Auckland

After walking our dog on labor day we arrive back to our street and notice clouds of smoke. Our neighbors house was on fire and her and her 3 month old baby were trapped inside.

My partner and I reacted quickly and he was a true hero, finding a pole to break their window to hand me the baby and get her out safely.

Conner (my partner) had a large laceration on his thumb from the glass and the woman also had some cuts. The baby was unharmed.

After the chaos I managed to run next door to and I made their baby a bottle and gave them all our bottles and formula and nappies that we have for our baby.

She was eternally grateful. Unfortunately many of her things were damaged and we'd also love to help her and her kids out with donations!

BUT that is not the end of it... while we were in the A&E getting Conner stitched up... OUR CAR GOT STOLEN!?

all our babies things were inside, pram, carseats, front pack, portacot and more.

As a nursing student we are a single income family with a man who works 12 hour night shifts. With this as our only vehicle. This has really hit us hard as you can imagine.

Luckily we have basic car insurance but not contents insurance and are hoping if we cannot locate the vehicle than our insurance can also assist us in getting a new vehicle.

We hate to ask for help but would be forever grateful for it!

Surgery  5 November 2020

Posted by: Connor Dickson

Conner has now been referred to a specialist for his thumb laceration.

Unfortunately he hasn't got any movement in his thumb which means the laceration has probably cut his tendons.

He will most likely be having surgery in the next week or so.

Conner works a very manual, heavy lifting job so this is extending his period off work.

We are so thankful for this give a little and hope it may help us get through the financial struggle of him being off work.
