Pair come to aid of pothole crash cyclist
THEY say anyone who dons the famous red jersey of Liverpool will never walk alone.
And this proved the case after two 'good Samaritans' came to the rescue of a Yeovil cyclist in need.
Reds fan, Lincoln Armstrong, 44, was left dazed after hitting a pothole when cycling to work.
He was flung over the handlebars and landed 15 feet away from his crumpled bike – suffering a broken collarbone in the process.
However, Mr Armstrong, of Portreeve Drive, said he was "humbled" when two strangers helped him up and took him to Yeovil District Hospital.
He said: "I was cycling to work on a cycle path near Huish Post Office and the primary school.
"A woman with her son were on the path and two women were coming the opposite way, so I cycled onto the grass – but hit a pothole.
"I went straight over the handlebars and heard a huge 'crack'. As soon as I went down I knew it was a bad one, and it took me a couple of minutes to realise what had happened.
"I was wearing a Liverpool top at the time, so I guess it's true what they say – you will never walk alone with that red top on.
"I don't know the names of the two women and they didn't have to help me so I want to say a huge thanks."
AgustaWestland employee Mr Armstrong revealed he has been unable to attend work for the past three weeks as a result of the injuries sustained on Wednesday, September 11.
And despite a painful recovery process which could ultimately lead to an operation to pin his collarbone, the football fanatic revealed the most excruciating part of his ordeal was missing out on a ticket to see his beloved Reds.
He said: "I'm a big Liverpool fan and one of my colleagues, who has a season ticket, had offered me a ticket to a recent game but I couldn't go with my injury, which was annoying.
"I didn't expect my collarbone to take this long to heal – but it could have been a lot worse had the two women not helped me."
