Can we trace the "Good Samaritan of South Ockendon" who may have saved an elderly lady’s life

A THURROCK family are desperate to trace the "Good Samaritan" who came to the assistance of their elderly grandmother.

Eileen Lloyd (87) was found by the mystery man in Broxburn Drive, at just after midnight on Tuesday morning (December 8th).

Eileen, who has dementia, had fallen very heavily, as she wandered the streets alone and confused.

Eileen’s daughter-in-law, Sarah, takes up the story.

Sarah said: "The young man found Eileen and seeing the state she was in, wanted to call for an ambulance. But he didn’t have a phone. So he took her to a phone box and called the ambulance service from there.

"He stayed with her until they came.

"There is no doubt about it. This young man saved her life. Eileen would have succumbed to hypothermia. The ambulance crew confirmed it".

Eileen was taken to hospital but the young man did not leave any details and disappeared into the night.

Sarah added: "I just want to let him know that Eileen is ok. She has a number of facial injuries but she is on the road to recovery.

"The whole family just want to meet him or in some way, just say thank you."
