By now, we are all aware of the horrible situation that is unfolding in Texas. While desperate times might be difficult to deal with, they are also a time when the resilience and kindness of humanity shows itself. And that is what came out of Texas in the form of Ryan Sivley.
Sivley is a true hero having helped out roughly 150 people who gave been stranded on the icy roads. The Austin, Texas resident has spent the last few days braving the ice and snow with his chains, ropes, and his four-wheel drive to help out stranded drivers along the side of the road. What is even nobler is that he refuses any money – he’s doing it all out of the goodness of his heart.
The good samaritan told KVUE, “I’ve been helping anybody I find on the side of the road. I do a lot of off-roading with different groups in Austin, so I had recovery straps and chains and I have two trucks that are four-wheel drive.”
Sivley is willing to help anyone who needs it, but he has made an extra effort for stranded medical staff and other essential workers in order to get them to their jobs. He has even gone as far as driving patients home from the hospital.
Sively shared that his motivation is coming from a personal place, as he, himself, was part of a bad car crash last March. The accident resulted in a near-death experience that shattered his pelvic bone. To this day, Sivley is unable to walk more than two hours a day but thankfully is able to drive as long as needed without any pain.
It is completely admirable what he is doing, something that he’s said is making everyone “really happy.” And that is just so kind of him.
