  1. Great job by paramedics and firefighters as injured party wax in a very awkward position on the steep slope of the footpath.
    Pitch black as footpath light was not working (there’s a surprise).
    And great response by local residents who found and stayed with the injured lady for well over an hour in rainy conditions until the ambulance arrived.
