Mum who abandoned car rushing daughter to A&E returned to find note from strangers who talked warden out of giving her ticket – The Sun

A MUM rushing to get her badly injured daughter to A&E returned to her illegally parked car to find a sweet surprise instead of a hefty fine.

Sarah Moore whisked her two-year-old daughter Lacie-Christina Moore to hospital in Lancaster after she split her head open.

The worried mum ditched her car on double yellow lines outside Royal Lancaster Infirmary despite being warned of ticket wardens.

Putting the safety of her daughter first, Sarah raced inside with her poorly daughter, leaving her car illegally parked.

When she returned, instead of receiving a hefty fine as she expected, Sarah found a hand-written note on her windscreen.

I was fully expecting to come out of the hospital and to have a parking ticket, I had come to terms with that, they made me feel a lot happier and made it so much easier

The sweet note was written by members of staff from the North West Private Ambulance Liaison Service (NWPALS).

The thoughtful message explained how they "sweet talked" a traffic warden into not giving her a ticket.

Adding to their kindness, the staff let Sarah park in the ambulance bay across the road from the hospital.

Sarah, from Morecambe, Lancashire, said:  "They didn't have to do that, it made things a lot easier.

"I was fully expecting to come out of the hospital and to have a parking ticket, I had come to terms with that, they made me feel a lot happier and made it so much easier."

The mum rushed to the hospital on 2 July after her daughter split her head open on the hinge of a door.

She said:  "It happened at my nan's.

"Lacie was running between the patio doors and me, my nan has doors that open inwards so the hinges are on the inside.

"Lacie tripped on the carpet and hit the hinges, I thought she was alright at first but when I picked her up there was blood everywhere."

SWEET TALKING HELPERS

Panicked by the blood and eager to get her tot seen by doctors, Sarah drove to the hospital in just 15 minutes.

She said:  "When I saw the blood I thought I was going to pass out.

"I felt so ill, I asked my grandma to take Lacie and we put loads of towels on her to stop the blood but it was everywhere, all over her face and in her mouth.

"There was no time to call for an ambulance so I just put her in the car and got her there in 15 minutes, it was scary."

Arriving at the hospital, Sarah abandoned her car on the double yellow lines and quickly took her child into A&E, telling staff outside she wasn't bothered about receiving a ticket.

When she returned to the car, the staff had left the sweet note on her windscreen, making her traumatic day a little easier.

It read: "Good afternoon, we noticed you left your car here as you rushed your child into A&E.

"We spoke with the traffic warden and told him about your situation and managed to sweet talk him into letting you off under the circumstances.

"He wanted to us to let you know that you can leave the car in the ambulance bay across the road.

"We hope the little one is okay, kindest regards, staff at the North West Private Ambulance Liaison Services (NWPALS)."
