The Helpless Woman

One Sunday morning, a woman was heading to the church as usual when all over sudden slip and fall on her side. People who were around thought that it was just an ordinary falling and therefore non run to her rescure. Only to realize that the woman was taking long on the ground, I decided to go near her and find out what was wrong. Only to find the woman sobbing. I helped the woman to get up, but she was in a great pain from the way she was struggling to stand firm. Her legs could not support her and therefore I raised an alarm for the people who were around to come and help me find out what was wrong. We latter found out that one of the rushed the woman to the near by hospital and was taken care of while we went to our destinations.
