Exmouth's good

samaritans

We were walking along Mamhead

View on exmouth's seafront last

Wednesday evening (May 19) when

my friend, Peter, fell backwards

into the road and cut his head

badly.

While looking after him, without

any of the aids that first aid

courses advise you use, I was

really surprised by the generous

actions of at least three couples

who immediately stopped to help.

Within minutes, one lady had

phoned for the ambulance, another

gent had supplied me with his

own clean unworn T-shirt to rest

Peter's head on and a third couple

had stopped their car and rushed

across with a blanket to keep him

warm (if they'd like it back, please

contact me via the email I left with

the Journal).

Within a short time, two "star

paramedics" arrived and, with

humour and care, took charge,

cleaned up Peter and made him

comfortable.

We soon found our way to exeter's

Hospital accident and emergency

department where, after

careful checks, Peter was eventually

"sewn up" and released home

He has made an excellent recovery

and, like me, would like to

thank all the generous people who

helped us around 6.30 that evening

John Day,
