A woman who was helped by a group of Good Samaritans when she collapsed walking to Ryhall wants to personally thank the people who helped.
Emma Hughes, 22, of King’s Road, Stamford, was walking to her mum’s house in Ryhall on Tuesday, when at about 5.30pm, a heart condition she suffers from caused her to collapse.
Emma suffers from postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome, which causes her heart rate to increase and her blood pressure to drop which makes her pass out.
Emma began to feel ill on her walk and passed out on the outskirts of Ryhall, on the pavement alongside the A6121.
When she came to members of the public had come to her aid.
Emma said: “I woke up and a jogger and a foreign lady, who I think was a trainee nurse, had stopped and called 999.
“Some more people stopped. Two men were sheltering me from the rain with umbrellas until the first responders and ambulance crew got there, and another woman stopped her car and covered me in blankets. I also remember a female doctor helping me.”
Emma said: “I think it is brilliant that so many people stopped. When something happens like that you expect people to be nosey but to have so many people help out and stop is just amazing.
“It was really lovely, especially the lady who drove to my mum’s house and told her what had happened.
“I want to find the people who helped me to be able to say thank you. By the time I had been put in the ambulance everyone had gone.”
