"Hello, is anyone a member of a Facebook group that’s York based that could post something for me?

Ethan had a nasty fall down the steps of York Train Station last night.

He was knocked unconscious and lost a lot of blood from a severe head trauma.

Some people stopped to help him, called 999 and waited with Ethan til the paramedics arrived.

I’m eternally grateful for what they did;

Ethan was alone and seriously hurt and they’ve massively helped his chances of a full recovery by acting so quickly and taking care of him.

I’m trying to trace anyone who was there to help, as I’d love to thank them personally.

LNER are helping but so far I’ve only got one name and this may not be right.

A chap called Jake mid to late twenties.

If you know anyone who commutes through York that might have seen something that would be great too.

This all happened last night (Tues Feb 25th) between 18:10 & 18:50.

Ethan fell at approx 18:10 but didn’t leave the station for the hospital until approx 18:50.

Thank you xxxxMum
