Md. firefighters mow lawn for disabled man

When firefighters showed up to help the disabled man's friend who suffered a seizure, they wanted to help do a job he couldn't do himself

UPPER MARLBORO, Md. — Carlos Scruggs of Upper Marlboro says he just couldn't figure out who was responsible for a simple act of kindness that literally transformed a rough patch in his life.

The story starts with sadness. Scruggs explains, "My mom passed in December and four months later, my father passed." Scruggs says it breaks his heart to have to now sell his Upper Marlboro childhood home. Until then, Scruggs says it's very important to keep the house looking good, including the lawn.

Carlos had his leg amputated 10 years ago, so he asks a friend to help, but two weeks ago, before they even started, his friend got ill, "He went in to get a drink of water and had a seizure." EMS and firefighters came, and took his friend to MedStar Southern Maryland Hospital.
