Hastings Observer letters

On Wednesday, January 11, 2017 around 12.30pm, I was in Warrior Square when I tripped and fell flat on the pavement.

I was unable to move, badly injured and in a lot of pain.

Two young women passing by came immediately to help me, as did a dentist from the practice I was heading to. They got me back into a sitting position and as comfortable and as warm as possible and called for an ambulance. Together they stayed with me until the ambulance crew arrived.

I do not know the names of my helpers, but I would like them to know how grateful I am for their timely assistance.
