#GoodNews: Broken Down in Australian Outback

A good Samaritan drove 1,200 miles to rescue a family whose car had broken down in the middle of the Australian Outback. 

Daryn Melrose, his wife and 2 daughters were driving to compete in the national minnow sailing championships when their car broke down. Rodney Sims, who lives about 600 miles from where the family had broken down, was scrolling through Facebook on his day off when he saw a post about the stranded family.

"About 30 years ago, strangely enough, I was in a similar situation with a broken-down car and someone helped me out ... this was my time to give back."

Rodney drove 600 miles to pick up the family, hooked up the trailer, and drove them 600 miles to their destination.
