I am so thankful to them all

I would like, through the good offices of your newspaper, to gratefully thank three women who so kindly assisted me on Monday evening, November 16, on Wrestwood Road,near where it meets The Glades.

A dog ran out from a footpath onto this busy road and on the new island I was able to grab his collar preventing him from continuing into the oncoming traffic.

However, holding both the dog’s collar and the shopping trolley in my other hand, I fell down on my face onto the road.

I know I wouldn’t have been able to get up without the assistance of these three women.

A lady driver of a car which had to break suddenly, which must have been very upsetting for her, got her first aid kit out of the car and took care of my face which was bleeding.

Another lady rang for the ambulance.

These three women, I know, had to get home, one having a baby at home, but they stayed with me.

I do not know what I would have done had they not been there and assisted me.

I know I would not have been able to get up from the road unaided, or would have taken some while on a very busy road.

I shudder to think what might have happened without their help.

I am so thankful for them and they can never know just how much their help was appreciated.

Finally, I love dogs and should like to think that those walking dogs should be aware to keep their dogs on leashes in the vicinity of busy roads.
