Appeal for rescuers after fall
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.
