Driver comes to the rescue

Have your say

A BUS driver came to the aid of a woman who was seen self-harming in a car parked in Fosdyke village.

Police and an ambulance were called at about 6pm on Thursday after the woman was spotted cutting herself with a glass bottle.

A passerby, who did not wish to be named, told the Lincolnshire Free Press: “The driver of the bus obviously saw what was happening and got involved.

“He tried to get the bottle off her and he was covered in blood.

“She looked to be in a right state and I think she had probably cut her wrists.”

A police spokesman said the 48-year-old woman was taken to Pilgrim Hospital, Boston, because of concerns for her wellbeing.

The driver worked for Cropley Coaches.

Boss John Cropley confirmed a driver had been involved in an incident but said he did not wish to comment further.
