Chicken Soup Presentation

Richardson Family

On July 21, 2015, at 6:04 p.m., Sgt. Chris McBane was dispatched to 3503 Chris Hessler Road on a pedestrian accident call.  Thomas Richardson was pulling into his driveway and unbeknownst to him his granddaughter Audrey Temple was walking in the driveway by a parked motor vehicle.  As Mr. Richardson pulled in Audrey walked around the front of the parked vehicle and was struck.  Audrey sustained serious injuries and was Life-Flighted to Children’s Mercy Hospital.  Mr. Richardson’s wife Cindy Richardson was so moved by the compassion and concern Sgt McBane showed toward her husband and granddaughter she wrote to Chicken Soup for the Soul.  The story was published in an edition of the book entitled "The Spirit of America: 101 Stories about what makes our country great."  The Richardson family has come today to present a copy of that book to Sgt. McBane and say a few words.
