Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Front Page -

THE grate­ful son of an el­derly heart-at­tack vic­tim has met two of the women who helped save her.

Jeremy Weatherall met store work­ers Sue Cas­tle and Julie Porter, who aided Daphne Weatherall when she col­lapsed at Sains­bury’s in Ash­ford.

The group met dur­ing a visit to the 82-year-old while she was re­cov­er­ing at the town’s Wil­liam Har­vey Hos­pi­tal.

Mrs Weatherall col­lapsed at the store off Si­mone Weil Av­enue last month.

Ms Porter, Ms Cas­tle and col­league Kim­ber­ley Knowles took turns to give her chest com­pres­sions while fel­low worker Sarah Waller kept cus­tomers back.

Mrs Weatherall had also suf­fered a stroke and was taken by am­bu­lance to the hos­pi­tal in a crit­i­cal con­di­tion.
