Thanks to kind duo who helped af­ter fall

The Oban Times - - Letters -

Sir, In the course of a sail­ing hol­i­day, I was walk­ing through Oban on May 14 this year when I tripped and hit my head.

Two peo­ple, a man and a woman, im­me­di­ately came to my aid. They were out­stand­ingly kind. When they had as­sessed the sit­u­a­tion, the young man, who was wear­ing an Oban High School top and clearly had some knowl­edge of first aid, first re­united me with my wife.

She was shop­ping separately from me and in my dazed con­di­tion I would have had dif­fi­culty in find­ing her. He then took charge of us and got us to Oban hos­pi­tal, where I re­ceived first- rate overnight mon­i­tor­ing. At the time I was not re­ally in a con­di­tion to thank these two very kind in­di­vid­u­als ad­e­quately for all they did for me.

My wife and I very much ap­pre­ci­ated the help we re­ceived, and I write this let­ter in the hope that they will learn how much it was ap­pre­ci­ated.

I have made a small do­na­tion to an Oban char­ity. When there is so much bad news around, it is wel­come to be re­minded that there are also so many good peo­ple. Wal­ter Reid, Beauly, Bridge of Weir.
