A busy NHS worker, who is set to give 64 hours this week to saving lives on the Isle of Wight, has thanked a good samaritan who helped her after she broke down at the side of the road earlier today (Wednesday).
Sarah Marie had just picked up her children from school when her car suddenly stopped – she had run out of petrol.
Thankfully, a man called Adrian Stanfield stopped and offered his assistance. He first went to the local petrol station but found it was closed.
Unwilling to leave Sarah and her family at the roadside, Adrian then drove into Newport, paid for a can of petrol and brought it back to fill up Sarah’s car to ensure they went safely on their way.
“It was completely my fault but being in the middle of a 64 hour working week for the NHS it’s hard to find even a minute to get to a petrol station”.
Sarah has called Adrian an ‘absolute hero’ and has expressed her gratitude.
