Rachel said: “We are ever so grateful to whoever found my dad and helped him.

“If he had not been found we dread to think what might have happened.

“He had been knocked unconscious in the fall and could have lain there all night, in the cold, without any medical treatment”.

John was on is way home to Crescent Road about 10.30pm at night when he slipped.

John Fay of Birkby wants to thank a kind Samaritan that helped him after a fall.

“He had been taken there in an ambulance but we don’t know who found him. Whoever it was must have had quite a shock; they probably thought it was a dead body as he was out for the count.

“He had a knock on the head but the worst injuries were to his leg and he had to have plastic surgery.

“They kept him in for four days but he is now on the mend and like me, he wants to find out who saved him.

“We owe them so much”.
