A member of staff at Chalfont St. Peter’s Marks and Spencer took to social media to thank all the people that came to the rescue of an elderly man who had a fall in the car park in front of the shop.
Pip Holman, speaking to MyChalfonts said: “There wasn’t any kerbs or objects in the way but he did fall on his stick so he could of tripped over that! I know he wasn’t dizzy before the fall. I am aware that he is out of hospital and recuperating at home.
“I honestly can’t put into words how proud I am of our community coming together! Also in such a testing time risking their own health to help another person.
“It took many people from the lady who put her car in the way, and had a first aid kit and a blanket we couldn’t have done it without her! And a friend of mine Louise who rang 999 and got the information they needed to get help.
“We also didn’t know if he had coronavirus symptoms or could have been a carrier. I feel so lucky to live in such an amazing community.”
Many people who were at the scene commented underneath the post saying how grateful they are to be part of this community.
Resident Nova Humphrys, who helped administer first aid added: “I hope he’s ok but a big thank you to all that came to his and our need we worked as a team. From helping with antibacterial gel for our gloves and kitchen roll to calling 999 to a fully stocked first aid kit with butterfly stitches.
“The ambulance crew were amazing and even said what a great job we had done.”
