Community Heroes Help Collapsed Elderly Lady

Some kind hearted and quick thinking Paignton Academy students went to the aid of an elderly lady who was crossing the road next to Paignton Zoo when she collapsed and fell. The small group of students saw what had happened and ran to help her. They flagged down an oncoming car to alert adults to what had happened. The lady who has since recovered said of the students “they were polite and mature and had such a caring attitude”. The lady’s family has also been in touch with the school to pass on their gratitude.
