A man is appealing to find the young couple who helped to save his elderly mother’s life.
Nick Skinner, 43, of Boughton Monchelsea, received the call from his sister Anthea Hallihan to say that his mother was in hospital after falling in the road on the evening of Saturday, March 4.
He said: “If it hadn’t been for the young couple finding her, we don’t know what would have happened.
“Our Saturday could have been a whole lot worse if it wasn’t for them, she could have been hit by a car.”
Mary Skinner, 75, of Linton Hill, Maidstone, was discovered by the couple at around 8pm, lying partially in the road after leaving The Bull Inn – her local pub just across the road from her house.
The couple got her home safely and then waited with her for the ambulance to arrive.
Mary received lacerations on the right side of her head and a potential broken nose but is recovering well after an overnight stay in the hospital.
Mr Skinner, a photographer, posted details of the fall on Facebook on Sunday, March 5, asking people to “please pass on our family’s massive thanks” to the couple.
The post has been shared over 400 times across many areas of Maidstone such as Loose, East Malling and Coxheath but has not yet managed to reach the pair who helped Mary.
Mr Skinner said: “My faith in humanity has been restored and we are so grateful.
“The simplest thing me and my sister could say is thank you so much.”
If anyone has any information about who this couple might be, call Nick on 07912758292.
