Men In Van Help Injured Lady In Accident
Saturday, 3rd January 2004.
A WOMAN who fractured her shoulder in five places when she tripped over a paving stone wants to thank two men who came to her rescue.
Pam Smith, 65, of Kings Hill, Kedington, was walking along Camps Road in Haverhill when she fell over.
She was unable to get up, but a white van pulled up and two young men helped her by taking her to her son's and then to the doctor's.
Mrs Smith said: "I was lying there thinking 'how am I going to get up?' I was trying to put weight on my arm, but I couldn't.
"Several cars went past, but they stopped and picked me up, which I thought was very nice, because I do not know how I'd have got up otherwise.
"I just want to thank them for their kindness."
She was later referred to West Suffolk Hospital and is still recovering from the accident, on December 15.
"I have a bruise from my elbow to my shoulder and it is all the colours of the rainbow," she said.
The men who helped her are asked to call her son Noddy at the Rose Tavern in Burton End, Haverhill on (01440) 702512.
