n 2015, a twenty-something woman named Ellie Farnfield was traveling alone on a London train. The part-time acupuncture student was heading to teach a fitness class.
Suddenly, and without warning, Ellie suffered an epileptic seizure and collapsed on the train floor.
When Ellie came to, she found herself alone in the hospital. She was confused and hazy, but quickly noticed a handwritten note beside her.
The note, written in blue pen on a piece of looseleaf paper, was from a man named Tom who she did not know.
Ellie was so blown away by what this note said that she posted it on Facebook in an effort to track down this mysterious Tom.
Scroll down to see what he wrote her…
The acupuncture student was heading to teach a fitness class after leaving a family get-together.
With no companions to care for her, Ellie collapsed on the floor and blacked out.
The note read:
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.
So, she posted the note and story on her Facebook page, hoping to track him down. She says his actions “restored her faith in humanity.”
Ellie wanted everyone to share the note, and it quickly went viral.
People all over the world posted Tom’s note, hoping someone out there would know him.
“It was so nice of him, it’s one thing helping people but doing additional things like what Tom did is something else.”
What an incredible act of kindness. If it wasn’t for Tom, who knows what could have happened to Ellie. Please SHARE this with your friends on Facebook, and let’s track this hero down!
