A woman who called 999 after finding a man in Northampton with life-threatening injuries said she did all she could to help him.

The woman, who the Chronicle & Echo has chosen not to name, was taking her seven-year-old son to a Martial Arts class in The Mounts at 5.15pm on Friday when she saw a man by the railings in Barrack Road outside the Izeez restaurant.

The woman said a lot of people were walking past the man but she stopped to help him as he looked like he may be injured.

After talking to him she immediately rang 999 for an ambulance.

The eye-witness said she was on the phone to the operator for 11 minutes and helped cover the man’s wounds. She said her son helped direct police officers to the scene of the incident.

An ambulance crew and police officers then arrived at 5.25pm and the man was taken to hospital.

She said: “I was really shocked. I did all I could to help him.”
