Woman thanks her rescuer after nasty kerb fall

A pensioner who sustained serious injuries to her face when she tripped and fell on an uneven kerb, has contacted the Observer in order to thank the mystery woman who came to her aid.

Anne Holliday was crossing Wilton Road at around 9am on Friday February 6 when she caught her foot on an uneven edge of the road, sending her sprawling across the pavement.

The 70-year-old was helped up by a passerby, who called an ambulance and stayed with her until the paramedics arrived.

Anne was taken to the Conquest Hospital in Hastings, where CT scans and X-rays revealed she had fractured her left wrist in the fall.

She was also left with extensive bruising and deep cuts which required treatment.

Anne said: “I had stitches in my forehead and nose and they had to stick the cut near my eye as it’s too fine.”

Anne was discharged from hospital several hours later.

Speaking about her anonymous rescuer, Anne said: “I do not know who she is, where she comes from or if she lives in the town, but I just wanted to say thank you.”
