Woman praises 'Good Samaritan' from bakery in Petts Wood who rushed to her aid
AN 80-YEAR-OLD woman who tripped in Petts Wood has praised the Good Samaritan who rushed to her aid.
Margaret Thimbleby, of Wardens Close, Orpington, was walking along Queensway when she tripped outside Queen's Village Bakery and hit her face on the pavement.
The owner, Remi Mustafa, immediately ran out and helped the pensioner to her feet.
Mrs Thimbleby said: "I had been to Hair and Beauty to get my hair done and as I walked past the bakery I tripped on something uneven like a paving stone, I'm normally quite good on my feet.
"I fell down on my face and jolted my arms trying to break my fall.
"The owner saw me, rushed out and bought a chair and some water.
"He offered to call an ambulance but I explained my husband was in the car park and so he walked me over.
"He really was a Good Samaritan.
"I often go in there anyway because of the delicious cream buns.
"My husband, Derek, and I went to A&E and to Kings in Denmark Hill because my cheekbone was so bruised but nothing was broken."
Mr Thimbleby has contacted the council about the uneven pavement.
