Last week, we ran a story saying we were looking for the Good Samaritan who stopped and helped Emily Scott, of Solon Township, who suffered a broken arm and fractured shoulder when she fell off her horse on Albrecht recently. Emily had asked for the woman to stop by and see her so she could thank her.

We received a call from someone (who wished to remain anonymous) that the Good Samaritan was Renee Doren, of Solon Township, and the manager at Verizon  Wireless in Cedar Springs and Caledonia.

“Renee is an absolutely wonderful person who goes above and beyond no matter what she does,” said the tipster.

The Post met up with both Emily and Renee, who have since visited.

According to Renee, she was on her way home from work when she saw a horse walking down the road without a rider. “Then I saw her on the side of the road and stopped and asked if she was ok. She said no, that her arm was broken bad. So I flagged down a passing truck to take her home, and then I walked her horse home about a half mile and put him away,” she explained.

By that time, Emily was on her way to the hospital.

Renee said that after we ran the story in last week’s Post, she received a Facebook message from a friend saying that the Post and Emily were looking for her, so she looked up the story online. She then stopped by Emily’s house, and struck up a new friendship. “I’m glad she’s ok,” said Renee. “We might even go out to dinner sometime.”

Renee, who also owns horses, didn’t feel like she did anything special. “I just did what I hope anyone else would do for me,” she explained.
