Some turned away as woman col­lapsed

Harefield Gazette - - OPINION -

SOME­THING hap­pened re­cently that caused me to ques­tion peo­ple’s at­ti­tudes to­wards their fel­low coun­try­man.

A lady had col­lapsed at the bus stop on Swakeleys Road in Ick­en­ham on Fri­day, Jan­uary 29.

I saw mo­torists and passers-by ig­nor­ing the lady, who was un­con­scious and one lo­cal res­i­dent re­fused to even call for the am­bu­lance stat­ing that the per­son was prob­a­bly un­der the in­flu­ence of al­co­hol.

I am truly grate­ful for the as­sis­tance from peo­ple that came to the lady’s aid. By the time the am­bu­lance ar­rived she had re­gained con­scious­ness.

If any­body has any news on this lady I would be pleased to know if she is now fully re­cov­ered. BOB HAY­DEN Pri­ory Av­enue
