So many helpers after fall

  • Print

I tripped and fell near the front of the Manitoba Liquor Commission building on the corner of Osborne Street and River Avenue.

Immediately, several women picked me up and took me to the concrete bench and put tape on my bleeding knee. Several times, a worker from the liquor store came out and asked me what he could do for me.

Finally, I was able to talk and asked for an ambulance. He got my sister’s phone number and also brought an umbrella to save me from the sun as it was a hot day last summer.

The young man who had a hotdog stand brought me a bottle of water and gave me his chair.

The ambulance took me to St. Boniface Hospital and into a wheelchair and placed me in the Emergency room waiting room. I sat there for four to five hours. Luckily, my sister came and wheeled me to the washroom and brought me some food.

X-rays showed a broken knee cap and a broken wrist.

I spent seven weeks in the hospital. All the workers in the St. Boniface Hospital were very kind and helpful.

I am so thankful for all the help I received when I fell down and for the good service in the hospital.
