Quick-thinking Hatfield cadet saves woman on bus
AN army cadet put her first aid training to good use as she dashed to the rescue of a young woman having a fit on her bus.
Anne-Marie Twigg was on her way to college when a fellow passenger sat a couple of rows in front of her collapsed as the vehicle stopped at WGC bus station.
The 17-year-old, who lives in the Oxlease area of Hatfield, told the WHT she placed the woman in the recovery position and called an ambulance to the scene.
Gary Sanderson, East of England Ambulance spokesman said the woman in her 20s, was taken to the QE2 Hospital after the fit as a precautionary measure.
It is not clear what caused the woman to collapse. It is believed she could have been diabetic.
