Good Samaritan praised

Youth comes to pensioners aid.

A Seaton pensioner has praised a youngster for going to his aid when he collapsed in the street.

Michael Osborne, 65, was walking in Axminster when he was taken ill, on Tuesday, January 10.

He says the speedy intervention of a “good Samaritan”, whose name he never got, almost certainly saved him from a worse fate.

Mr Osborne, of Westwood Way, said: “I am sure without his immediate help the outcome may have been a different story.

“I can thankfully say I have made a full recovery and that I am back home now.

“I would like to sincerely thank the young person – whoever he is - for all his help.”
