Imagine waking up on a train, having no idea how you got there.
This happened to Ellie Farnfield, she woke up confused but what she found in her hand when she woke up was the biggest surprise of all.
A Confused Ellie
Ellie Farnfield is a 27-year-old acupuncture student living in London. She has no history of seizures so when she unexpectedly suffered one on her daily train commute it was a big shock. Ellie had no idea what had happened to her. She woke up dazed and the first thing she realized was the handwritten note in her hand.
The note read,
“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 realizing 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. Love Tom”
While Tom never came forward, Ellie is still very grateful for his act of kindness.
Once Ellie recovered, she was determined to find Tom and thank him for his good deed. She started the hashtag #FindTrainTom and her story quickly went viral. However, Tom never came forward to Ellie but she is still very grateful.
Hope For The Future
Ellie’s story goes to show there are still good, decent people in the world! Tom still remains a mystery, but his act of kindness will not be forgotten. Good samaritans, otherwise known as angels in disguise, still live amongst us!
