I think it's standard procedure. I was very specific in my initial description as I has a front row seat.
Years ago in NS I pulled an elderly couple out of their car after it partially overturned in a small river during a torrential thunderstorm. Got them to the shore as my wife found a highway mileage marker and called 911. Later that night I received a call from the head of the local RCMP unit thanking me. Go Canada.
