I saved someones life today.
Chantelle, Disney and I were mopping and cleaning the salon when this old lady starts stumbling up the street clutching her head. I popped out to check if she was alright and wanted a sit down.
Walked into the salon and I noticed this real dark patch on the back of her head, so I asked one of the girls to grab me a towel and a set of gloves, we sat her down and there was a huge gash just below the crown of her head. Grabbed the phone and did the good ol’ 999, chatted to the operator and gave the address and name and what had happened.
Turns out she had a few drinks inside of her and fell down a flight of stairs and carried on walking home after being at the pub at 5pm. Her coat was soaked in blood so we stemmed the bleeding and kept her talking ‘cause the man on the line said don’t let her pass out or it could get worse.
Chantelle stayed with me despite being ultra squeemish of blood and Disney decided to bugger off home even in this situation, tick in the box for Chantelle for being a good lass.
Ambulance turned up, took blood pressure and checked out the gash and she needed hospital asap. He took her in his lil ambulance mobile thing and the lady grabbed me on the way out and said “You didnt have to do that, Thank you, I just want my bed” I replied, “Good thing we got you in here otherwise it could’ve been an awful lot worse”
Paramedic gave me a thumbs up and said Thanks and Chantelle and I then named ourselves heroes and then went to costa for a beverage.
I feel so awesome.
