Cy­clist wants to thank kind man

Hull Daily Mail - - NEWS -

HULL: A 20-year-old wants to find and thank a man who helped him af­ter be­ing thrown over his bi­cy­cle han­dle­bars.

Jor­dan, pic­tured, was cy­cling along Guild­hall Road in Hull city cen­tre at about 2am on Wed­nes­day, when he pulled on his brakes and swerved in or­der to miss an on­com­ing car.

He was thrown over his han­dle­bars and on to the road, where he suf­fered nasty grazes and cuts to his face.

He now wants to find and thank a stranger who stayed with him for more than an hour.

“I was bik­ing home to east Hull and I wasn’t ex­pect­ing any­one to be around to help,” Jor­dan said.

“That’s when this old­ish guy came up to check on me. I asked if he was on his way home from work be­cause he was wear­ing a hi-vis jacket, but I can’t re­mem­ber if he said where from or what his name was.

“I rang an am­bu­lance be­cause I couldn’t move very well, but it didn’t ar­rive, so af­ter an hour or so I felt able to bike home.

“I just want to thank him for stay­ing with me for all that time. I told him I would go through the Hull Daily Mail to thank him, but I’m not sure if he’ll re­mem­ber me say­ing it.”

Jor­dan at­tended the hospi­tal the next day, where he was given a CT scan and found only to have superficial in­juries to his face.
