HELP: Stranger to the rescue

I’d like to express my thanks for an act of great kindness shown to me by a lady walking her dog on Saturday, April 14.

I had just had an accident at the bottom of the steps leading from Hillheads roundabout to The Crescent in Whitley Bay when she came to my aid.

There is no need to go into the cause, suffice to say that as an OAP I should have known better, but as a result I broke my leg in three places and dislocated my ankle.

The lady didn’t hesitate to help me and made sure I was comfortable until the ambulance arrived.

Unfortunately, I did not get her name, but hope that she is able to read this and know how much her kindness was appreciated. Thank you so much for what you did.
