AUGUSTA, GA (WRDW/WAGT) — Veteran Bill Cobbs and his wife, Jackie Cobbs, showed up for a doctor’s appointment at the Uptown VA Hospital. In a moment of confusion, Bill took off in his motorized wheelchair and Jackie was unable to stop him.
Thankfully, two men found Bill sitting under a tree in their front yard and were able to get him water, chat with him, and bring him back to safety. Unfortunately, Jackie forgot to get their names.
Since Tuesday, Jackie and her husband have been searching tirelessly to find the men who helped Bill and give them a proper thank you. Thanks to the power of social media and News 12, those men are now known.
They are Brian and David Cowart of Augusta… Read the full story and see the video interview from WRDW.
