Several people came to the aid of an elderly man who fell at lights at a pedestrian crossing in Forster.
Forster resident Mark Jensen was one of those one the scene.
Mark was heading to Tuncurry tip last weekend, where he noted the weigh station was still broken down.
“I had a moment of sadness coincidently on my way to the tip Saturday morning,” Mark said.
“Driving along Head Street, Forster toward the bridge, this elderly gentleman hopped from his mobility scooter, attempting to push the pedestrian button at the lights, when he fell heavily onto the road.”
Several people, including Mark, were quickly able to get to the man, helping with the bleeding and making him comfortable. Mark said the man fell forward splitting his forehead, leaving him quite disorientated and obviously in a lot of pain.
“One lady used an umbrella to help shade the injured man, while I rang for an ambulance and police.
“It took just several minutes for emergency vehicles to arrive, lifting the patient into the ambulance then driving off. I was unable to find out how the injured man ended up, I hope he is okay!
“The emergency personnel were great, as were those who stopped to help,” Mark said.
