Lucky for him – Near miss for me…..

Today 31st at 10:08 Driving (Slowly) Station Road, turning left to go into Scaldgate, an elderly gentleman on his mobility scooter was trying to negotiate around the Hedging by St Judes Church, the path narrows. He goes too wide – wheels over the curb, then tips over heavily onto the road. Fortunately my wife Connie tended to him initially until 2 other ladies assisted.
The 999 Call took 45 seconds to answer (more than 3 rings!) – then I was offered a menu?
The Paramedic arrived 11 minutes later and the Police came 14 minutes after the call.
After what seemed to be a quick check over – He went off  – rather wobbly and shaken along Station Road.
