EEAST staff thank good Samaritans
Date: 09 February 2018
Ambulance staff have thanked two good Samaritans who rushed to the aid of a seriously injured man in Peterborough.
Dean Taylor and Marcin Goralski were in the Shepherds Inn on Park Road when a pedestrian was struck by a car that had left the road on 17th January.
The pair went to help the injured man and took off their belts to help control the patient’s bleeding.
They were reunited with EEAST staff Rachel Dodman, Kerry Quy, Daniel Oldland, and Adam Bright last week who praised their actions.
Paramedic Kerry Quy, who arrived four minutes after the 999 call, said: “Both gentlemen took off their leather belts and put one on each leg of the man who had been hit by a car and stayed with the patient until our arrival.
“Without this action the patient would have bled to death. If they could make themselves known to the ambulance service we would like to personally thank them for their action.”
The patient was airlifted to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in a serious condition, with what are thought to be life-changing injuries.
