Barman who collapsed and smacked his head off concrete thanks good Samaritans who rescued him

A BARMAN wants to thank the good Samaritans who came to his aid after finding him unconscious in a town centre street.

Jay Young can remember little about how he ended up stricken in the street, but thinks he fell to the ground and hit his head on the concrete before blacking out.

But he says two young men and a woman found him, near the ramp in York Road, and rang an ambulance for him.

But before the ambulance came, Jay’s rescuers decided to save time and rang a taxi.

However, the kind threesome’s thoughtfulness didn’t stop there – they got in the taxi and accompanied Jay to the University Hospital of North Tees, in Stockton, and even paid for the fare.

Jay, a 33-year-old bar worker who lives in the town centre area, said: “They were really awesome, I’m really grateful.

“You hear stories of people dying of pneumonia just lying there in the cold, anything could have happened.”

Jay was making his way home from Loons bar, in Victoria Road, after a night out when the drama started.

Jay said when he came round, the back of his head was bleeding.

He spent four days recovering in hospital after the incident, which happened in 
the early hours of February 15.

He said: “I’m really grateful for the three Good Samaritans that helped me out.

“I would like to buy them a drink sometime.”
