A kind-hearted stranger has been praised for helping a lost Grimsby pensioner.
An elderly woman, who suffers from dementia, became confused after leaving Grimsby’s Diana, Princess of Wales Hospital.
Instead of waiting for her pre-arranged transport, she set out to walk home but quickly became lost.
It is understood the elderly woman could have come to “serious harm” had the good Samaritan not stepped in to help her.
“At this point, the kind-hearted woman called the lady a taxi and paid her fare to ensure that she got home safely”.
After hearing about the stranger’s heroic actions, PSCO Andy Whittaker issued an appeal to track her down to deliver the ‘thank you’ she so rightly deserved.
He said on Twitter “If this woman had not been so caring, the elderly lady could have become even more lost and confused and could have easily come to serious harm.
“If you’re reading this, please get in touch, as both we and the lady’s husband would love to be able to thank you personally for your kindness.”
Thankfully, the good Samaritan responded to this appeal and has sparked up a conversation with the elderly woman’s family, who have shared their gratitude to her.
PSCO Whittaker added: “Thanks to this appeal the ‘good Samaritan’ got in touch with us and her details have been passed to the family where messages of thanks and conversations have already been exchanged.”
