Grateful for assistance after tripping in Worthing town centre

On Thursday, March 3, at about 8am, in Western Road on the way to the doctor's surgery, I tripped at the curb and fell flat on the pavement.

A young lady came by but could not help. She stayed with me having turned me on my back.

A young man was next, who sat me up and supported me.

A third gentleman arrived. He lived near the houses across the square saying he had phoned for an ambulance which arrived very soon.

At first they wanted to take me to A&E but I assured them I had no broken bones and if they helped me up I could go across the road to the doctor’s surgery.

My good Samaritans had by now disappeared without a word and I had not been able to thank them.

The ambulance crew took me to the surgery much to the surprise of the receptionist as I walked in with two ambulance personnel.
