WHEN elderly Molly Moore had an unexpected fall, she didn’t hold out much hope of somebody coming to her rescue.

But, luckily for Molly, there were two passing good samaritans who stepped in to help in any way they could.

Now Molly, 78, from Portchester, and her son, Alf Horn, want to track down the two women and thank them for their kind deeds.

Molly said: ‘They were so very, very kind.

‘They were so lovely, and they wouldn’t leave me any forwarding address or contact details, not even with the ambulance. I wanted to send them some flowers but I don’t know who they are, or even where they came from.’

Retired Molly had been out for a day shopping in Cosham when she had a fall on Friday, July 26.

Molly said: ‘Lots of people are kind but these ladies were more than that.

‘They waited patiently with me and wouldn’t leave me by myself.

‘They even made sure my family knew what was happening.

‘So many people are so busy these days, I didn’t expect any help, but they waited with me and I’m so very grateful.’

After a trip to the accident and emergency department, Molly is on the road to recovery and is putting her feet up at home.

Her son Alf said: ‘I would like to thank the two good samaritans who came to my mother’s aid when she took a fall just behind Cosham High Street.

‘One of these ladies helped my mother up and collected her belongings and phoned the ambulance.

‘The other also assisted and put four hours on her car park ticket and would not allow my mother to reimburse her.

‘They then phoned my niece and both stayed until the ambulance arrived.

‘After a few hours in hospital, six stitches and a couple of bandages later, she was allowed home.

‘We would like to trace the ladies in question to thank them both for their kind assistance.’
