A man who collapsed in the middle of a busy street after having a seizure wants to track down the Good Samaritan who came to his aid.

Pyrcy Morson, 49, lost consciousness on Tuesday morning just after 9am in Northwold Road, Upper Clapton, as he was making his way home to the George Downing Estate.

The kind stranger, a Caucasian man, blocked the oncoming traffic and then took care of Mr Morson, calling emergency services and securing his possessions, handing everything over to the ambulance crew once they arrived.

Mr Morson said: “I went out like a light.

“He was a blessing in disguise, anything could have happened, I could have rolled in the middle of traffic, I could have got hurt but he secured me.

“When I came to I saw his face and he was reassuring me that all was well, he took off his jacket and put it under my head to secure my head because my head was hitting the pavement, he was straddled over my body to keep my body still.

“I didn’t have a chance to see who he was to say thank you.”

Mr Morson continued: “We definitely know there are good people, the angels in this life.

“Not all the angels are in heaven, there are angels walking on earth day to day, and we are looking at them.”

Mr Morson is now under investigation with a neurologist to pinpoint the cause of the seizure.
