A woman who went viral and was dubbed ‘superwoman’ after being filmed pushing a dairy truck up an icy hill in the UK has been rewarded for her selfless work.
Charlene Leslie, 33, was filmed earlier this week pushing the massive lorry up a snow-covered street in Cowdenbeath in Fife, during a strong blizzard.
Her good work has now been rewarded with a year’s supply of free milk, according to a Metro.co.uk report.
Charlene, who is a mother of three, said she was overwhelmed by all the attention she received after the short clip showing her heroic work went viral on social media.
As a token of appreciation, the diary firm that owns the truck has decided to gift Charlene a year of free products.
Charlene, who works at a supermarket, was heading to some shops with her daughters, Rihanna and Hunter, when she saw Graham’s lorry struggling to cross an icy road. She immediately asked her neighbour to watch her children and ran over to the road to offer help.
“I would never just stand by when I see someone in trouble. I suppose what I did was really dangerous, but thankfully Graham’s truck got safely up the hill. A load of people was trying to push a car up the hill when I noticed Graham’s truck coming behind it,” she said.
“Its front wheels were spinning, and it was stuck from all the snow. My neighbour appeared, so I asked her to watch the kids and the dog while I pushed it from the back. I really didn’t help out to receive anything in return, but I am absolutely delighted at their offer of free Graham’s dairy products for a year,” she added.
Chairman of Graham’s The Family Dairy, Dr Robert Graham Sr., said he couldn’t believe what he saw in the clip and thanked Charlene for her help.
“Although she is a real-life superwoman, for health and safety reasons we must advise others not to follow her actions. As a heartfelt thank you, Charlene and her family will receive our milk and high protein dairy products free for the rest of the year,” he said.
