When a nurse posted a photo of her daughter’s lemonade stand on Facebook, she had no idea that 30 motorcycles would come roaring up on their street to pay a visit.
Daryn Sturch and her daughter, Bryanne, stumbled upon a horrific collision involving numerous bikes on State Road 19 in Denver, Indiana, in September of last year.
“I’m a nurse, and I noticed multiple motorcyclists involved,” Daryn explained. “I informed my daughter that I needed to help and ran up to aid.”
She pulled over and witnessed the horrible situation. It appeared like one of them had lost control and their motorcycles had become entangled.
She parked her car a little further away so Bryanne wouldn’t see it, then dashed towards the wounded riders.
Daryn was used to caring for people as a nurse, so she consoled the five riders involved in the collision – three men and two women – until paramedics came.
Some of them had to be flown, but thankfully, all of them survived.
When the riders recovered, they approached her and praised her for her efforts. Daryn found out later that they were part of an organization called Milwaukee Iron.
“I simply got a deluge of thank you notes from them,” she recounted. Daryn and the bikers spoke via Facebook.
One year after the event, she posted a picture of Bryanne’s lemonade sale outside their house.
