RUSH hour – so lots of people driving up and down the bypass – and a gentleman had taken a fall between the railway station and Winsford Grange.

I managed to pull over out of the flow of traffic and found him on his hands and knees, not seriously hurt but unable to get to his feet without help.

He’d obviously been in that position for several minutes, if not longer.

Given the time of day dozens of people must have driven on by.

He was wearing a bright shirt so wasn’t difficult to spot.

And considering he was practically outside an assisted living facility there were enough clues there that he probably needed help.

Another lady pulled over when she saw me trying to help, and together we got the gentleman to his feet and safely home.

I hope whatever was so important to the rest of you that you couldn’t spare five minutes to help a fellow human being was worth it.
