Party Bus Takes Accident Victim to Medical Appointment

Posted on October 9, 2013

<p>An excited Nikka Perez, 11, is shown how to control the CD player by Phil Waterford on her way to see her orthopedic surgeon in Sacramento on Monday.</p>MANTECA, Calif. — Local limo operator Phil Waterford continues to help with the recovery of the seriously injured Lincoln Elementary School sixth grader who was airlifted to the U.C. Davis Medical Center in Sacramento several weeks ago.

Nikka Perez, 11, was struck by a hit and run driver last month, and Waterford, (who has been to visit the girl and family several times), volunteered to personally chauffer her in luxury to her orthopedic surgeon in Sacramento on Monday.  It was a complete surprise for Nikka when he pulled up to the curb of her home in a Mercedes party bus to take her, her mother and an aunt to Sacramento for her 1:30pm appointment.

Waterford and her mother helped her navigate a walker to the sidewalk. He lifted her through the door protecting her leg in the process from making any contact with the doorway.  Once inside he demonstrated the power window between the driver and those in the back and took several CDs from his pocket for her to choose from – showing her how to control the volume and the tone.
