A guy saved a woman's life and didn't even stick around to take credit for it, which kind of makes him the best person in the world. Ellie Farnfield was on the train from Surrey to London on Wednesday when she began to suffer an epileptic fit.
When the seizure subsided, she awoke to find a coffee, 10 British pounds, and a handwritten note from a man named Tom.
The note 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 realising 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 anymore 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.
The search for Tom is on: Ellie told London's Evening Standard: "I have no idea who this man was or if he was sitting next to me but I wanted to show how grateful I am to him. If Tom does come forward, first of all I would like to give him back his money and then thank him for what he did. He deserves a lot of praise."
She adds, "It was so nice of him, it's one thing helping people but doing additional things like what Tom did is something else."
Finally, a happy version of Strangers on a Train.
