(WTVR) — This man may not be a super hero, but the woman whose life he saved might think so.

Canadian woman Eileen O’Hara is 77 years old and needed medical attention recently after she felt ill by herself. She tried to call her daughter, but accidentally dialed the wrong number.

Luckily, she called the cell phone number of a man who was driving nearby. O’Hara was able to give Stephen Dykens directions to her home and he drove to help.

Dykens stayed with O’Hara until an ambulance arrived. She was later treated for bleeding on her brain.
