An image of a stranded trucker captured by Manitoba 511 highway cameras prompted Eileen Eagle Bears, 18, to spring into action.

She saw the image of the stranded motorist on the highway 10 camera and rode two miles each way up and down hills in icy conditions to deliver a thermos of hot coffee to the man on Tuesday morning.

"I just thought I should do something," she said. "I made up a thermos of coffee and took it to him on horseback."

The trucker, Peter Douglas, slept in his truck Monday night. The next morning, he got a pleasant surprise.

"Lo and behold, first thing in the morning, I look out my window and there was a horse and a young lady by the name of Eileen Eagle Bears," Douglas said. "She brought me coffee."

"She had to walk that horse half a mile up that hill and half a mile down because it was so icy. Blew me away," Douglas said. "She said she saw me on the camera. Her and her family were watching."

Douglas was surprised when Eagle Bears came back a second time with water and a thermos of stew and potatoes.

He said he's grateful for Eagle Bears generosity. He still has her thermoses, but plans to drop them off on his next run down.
