The sister of a man who died after collapsing on the side of the A43 Northamptonshire is appealing for information about a good samaritan who tried to save his life.

Steve Gregory, aged 48, of Brackley, was riding his motorbike on the dual-carriageway near Towcester on September 26 last year when witnesses saw him pull over to the side of the road and drop his bike.

Several vehicles pulled over and drivers tried to help Mr Gregory, who was found to have no pulse and was not breathing.

One particular man carried out CPR on Mr Gregory until an ambulance arrived 15 minutes later.

Mr Gregory was taken by air ambulance to Coventry hospital, where it was discovered that he had suffered a brain haemorrhage, causing him to collapse.

But the man, believed to be called Jeremy, who had delivered CPR had been so effective it had kept Mr Gregory’s organs alive long enough for his two kidneys and liver to be donated, saving the lives of three people.

Mr Gregory’s sister, Tina Loggin, of Banbury, has been searching since the incident to find the man who delivered the lifesaving treatment.

She said “With the help of the police I have been able to speak to and thank several of the men who were kind enough help Steve. All of them have mentioned this last man who did so much to keep Steve alive for as long as he did, and I’d love to find him.

“All I know about the man is that he may have been called Jeremy and he was travelling to Sheffield to take his daughter to university. I would like to say thank you Jeremy for acting so bravely and confidently.

“Although he wasn’t able to save Steve’s life he did make such a difference in that Steve was able to carry out his last, beautiful, gift of organ donation.”

TinaLoggin has set up the #findjeremy twitter campaign on Twitter in the hope that she can contact the kind stranger and contact him personally. Anyone with any information is asked to email Tina at tina@thecurvegroup.co.uk.
