A WEYMOUTH woman who fell outside a supermarket has expressed her gratitude for the support she received from strangers.
She said: “My face was the first thing to hit the concrete and it was bleeding.”
People passing by rushed to help Ms Cole, including an unknown lady and man.
She said: “There was a very kind lady that was comforting me and giving me tissues for the bleeding.”
As a crowd started to gather round Ms Cole, an unknown man also came to her aid.
She said: “He phoned the ambulance. He said, ‘No one can speak to the lady. She’s bleeding, she’s in shock.’ “I just wanted to let them know that I appreciate what they have done to help me.
She added: “I couldn’t even tell you what they look like.”
Ms Cole quickly received medical attention, but she’s still none the wiser why she fell.
“They gave me a good look over and everything and said it was okay to go home. They are not sure why I fell over either.”
Ms Cole said she felt ‘very sore’ and the fall had left her face in ‘quite a mess’.
Nevertheless, she remained in good spirits and thankful for the help she received from members of the public.
She said: “They were just wonderful.
“There are a lot of good people in Weymouth.”
