CI HERO gets reunited with the man he helped in an accident

PEORIA - A man who stopped to help a complete stranger he saw in a crash is a C-I HERO, but now months after the accident, the two men have met for the first time.

Chalmer Post was watching WMBD news one night and recognized a story in the newscast. The story was about his car accident and how Robert Righi had stopped to help him in a time of need.

Righi had seen the accident and the many people that kept driving past without stopping. He wanted to help and has been helping every day since, saying prayers that that man he met that day would be alright. The two had both tried to find each other. Righi had been calling hospitals and fire departments trying to get a name to get in touch with Post. Post had also done the same trying a number of times to connect with Righi. After seeing the CI Hero on the man who stopped to be with him. That was when Post reached out to us and Righi was over the moon to hear they would finally get to meet.

The two hope that in seeing this it’ll Encourage others during our busy lives in all the rushing around to stop and do something for someone else that might be in need.
