It’s got to be pretty scary to suffer from a seizure. It’s probably five times scarier to suffer from a seizure alone in a public place. When Eleanor Farnfield fell down on a train in London, the worst could have happened. Thankfully, a good Samaritan named Tom happened to be around, and after an unfortunate and embarrassing misstep, was able to help out Eleanor in any way he could. Once he made sure she was in safe hands, he unfortunately had to leave before she could meet the man who left this sweet (and kind of hilariously awkward) note behind.
The text reads:
Hi Eleanor. 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 realizing you were on the floor having a fit! Sorry! I’m also sorry I can’t stay with you now, but here is a 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’ve 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.
For her part, Eleanor posted the note online in the hopes of finding Tom to thank him. The global response has been unexpected to say the least.
We’re all holding out hope these two strangers get to meet once again.
