“I rushed in to help when a man was stabbed near my pharmacy”
Plucky dispenser Danielle sprung into action when a young man was stabbed in the chest and leg near her pharmacy in southeast London.
As Danielle was on her way to collect her child from school, she was alerted by a member of the public that a young man had been injured and was lying on the floor of the local community centre opposite the pharmacy she works at. Danielle applied pressure to the man’s injuries to reduce the amount of bleeding. An ambulance was called and the paramedic on the phone further helped guide her so she could tend to the man. The paramedics arrived shortly after and took over, and the young man was airlifted to St Thomas’ Hospital for immediate treatment.
Danielle’s heroism under pressure saved the young man’s life. Luckily, his condition stabilised and he was discharged from hospital – all thanks to Danielle’s efforts.
