About four months ago, I noticed some people on the street near my home so I approached them to see what was going on and saw that there was an elderly lady flat out on the pavement.  Turned out, she had tripped and fallen, and she had a badly bruised forehead and a bloody nose.   The bystanders were ready to let her get up and leave because she was adamant that she was fine, but she looked awful to me so I persuaded her to let me call 911 and we got her off to hospital.  I called her daughter a few days later to check on her and found out that she had a concussion, in addition to a broken neck.    She spent three weeks in the hospital and a few months later, I saw her, (all 4'6" of her) walking along with her dog, wearing a neck brace.   Completely out of the blue, I received a call from her a few days ago, thanking me for my help, and inviting me to lunch so today I had a very enjoyable time with a very interesting and appreciative 94 year old!   Knowing you've done something good for someone else is its own reward but it sure was nice to be treated to lunch!

Good thing you got her to go to the hospital. Very nice thing you did. And, taking her up on her offer to go to lunch was very nice as well.
