A pensioner received the “best service” from strangers who came to her rescue after falling in the street.
Frances Withers, 82, of Queenswood Gardens was shopping on Wanstead High Street on Thursday, November 2 when she tripped on some uneven pavement.
Eli, an ex-paramedic from South Woodford, saw Frances fall and rushed to help.
“It’s amazing how these people who didn’t know me, cared so much to help,” said Frances.
Three policemen, two passer-bys who happened to be paramedics and a doctor also tried to help.
The doctor took her blood pressure and assured her that everything was going to be okay.
She said: “I think I had the best service, they couldn’t do enough for me.”
The retired fashion store company director said she injured her knee and hip but did not need to go to hospital after being seen by the doctor and paramedics.
