Ap­peal for res­cuers af­ter fall

Strathearn Herald - - NEWS -

A 74- year- old woman has thanked four strangers who res­cued her af­ter fall­ing in Perth on Satur­day.

Sandra Dick, from Cri­eff, tripped on an un­even pav­ing stone as she ex­ited the St John’s Shop­ping Cen­tre onto South Street at around 12.30pm and fell face first as she made her way to catch the bus home.

In­jur ies sus­tained in­cluded two black eyes, a dam­aged nose and bruis­ing on her face.

But three off-duty nurses and a taxi driver were quickly on the scene and the Good Samaritans waited with Sandra for half an hour un­til the am­bu­lance came.

The taxi driver gave her his jacket to rest her head on.

Sandra said: “I re­ally ap­pre­ci­ate it.

“I just couldn’t be­lieve how kind they all were, and I’d re­ally like to thank them all.

“I was so up­set I went straight home. I didn’t go to the hospi­tal un­til later that night when my the pain in my ribs be­gan.

“I’m feel­ing a bit better now, other than the black eyes - my son keeps mak­ing panda jokes!”

Cur­rently, Sandra does not know the iden­tity of any of her res­cuers, and is ap­peal­ing for them to come for­ward.

Any­one who helped Sandra can get in touch with her via the Her­ald.
