I was on my way to the shops, and there were two student boys behind me. I passed a little old lady with her trolley (one of those things old people push around) and then three other student boys. Then I heard a sort of splat, so I turned around, and the little old lady was lying face down on the ground, having tripped on the curb. :cry:

I froze, and then just ran over and one of the boys kind of put his arms around her to lift her up. And I held her hands to help pull her up. And all the other boys were just sort of standing around. I was like, "Are you alright, are you hurt?"

She seemed okay, just a bit dazed. When she back on her feet, we all went on our way again.

I just felt completely shaken and awful and nearly crying for the rest of my walk :cry2: I should have made better sure that she was okay, and I should have offered to walk her home. I feel awful.

Just had to let that out. Sigh.

Yes, you should have. There's no point in worrying about it now, though.

I didn't think. It was all so random and sudden

Almost the same thing happened when I was going to the library, got out of the car and saw an old woman slipping on the footpath, went and helped her. Carried her bag and we walked, chatting all the way to the supermarket she was headed to. The old dear petted my cheek and called me an angel *sniff*. She made my day.

Don't be sad, at least you helped her. I hope she is fine, where ever she is....

You did the right thing though trying to help her. The other guys who just stood there are idiotic... Mothering instincts I see - I'm sure she'll be fine and visit her GP relatively soon if it was a big fall.

Once old lady tried to use cash machine, I was waiting for my turn, and she thought something is wrong took her card and walk away, when I came one step closer to cash machine, I saw loads of money coming, I took all the money run to her, gave her, she was happy. Best feel in my life. I am so proud.

:cry: I should have made better sure that she was okay. I just didn't think/didn't know what to do. It was only when I was in the shops that I realised that was what I should have done :cry2:

I am so disappointed in myself, I can't stop crying :sad:

You're making much more of a bigger deal than it should be. As long as she wasn't bleeding or looked on the verge of unconsciousness its fine. You helped, much more than some of the others did. Move on

The main worry with old women falling is that they break a bone. Had this happened, she would have known straight away, believe me. Chances are she was absolutely fine and will appreciate what you did.

I guess I did more than most of the boys, all but one just stood there and watched :mad:
But I still should have done more
