27-year-old collapses on train and awakes with a note in her hand
27-year-old Eleanor Farnfield, known as Ellie, was on the train to London after a get-together with her family. But before she reached her destination, the young woman suddenly collapsed in her wagon.
When she regained consciousness, she found herself in the hospital without knowing how she had gotten there. She looked around, confused, and then found a note next to her:
I hope by the time you read this you are feeling better. You had a seizure on the train and I took you off. You didn't hit your head but I may have hurt your leg as I walked on it before realising you were on the floor having a fit! Sorry!
I'm also sorry I can't stay with you now but here is coffee to perk you up later and £10 to make sure you get a taxi home. Sorry I don't have any more money so I hope you don't live far away. I contacted people from your phone and medical help is on its way and you're with train staff. Wishing you all the best and a quick recovery. Love, Tom"
Ellie had suffered an epileptic seizure on the train and Tom, someone she didn't know, had taken care of her. When the Brit read the message, she was so touched by his gesture that she shared a picture of the note on her Facebook page, accompanied by the words: "Faith restored in humanity in London last night. Thank you so much to everyone who helped me last night - especially "Tom". Would love to try and find this man so I can return his money and add many thanks to it!!"
Ellie has yet to find her rescuer but she still hopes to be able thank him personally: "It was so nice of him, it's one thing helping people but doing additional things like what Tom did is something else."
