FALL: Grateful to the helpers

Can we express gratitude to all the people who helped my mother Olive Park, who is 97 years old, when she fell after getting out of a taxi in Blyth.

As well as the taxi driver who stayed with Olive until helped arrived, we give a special mention to the two young men who on learning that an ambulance was not immediately available, took Olive in their own car to Cramlington hospital.

We do not know who they were, but are very grateful for their assistance.

With stitches to her head and a cast for a fractured wrist, Olive is now recovering at home.
