Trains delayed after passenger taken ill

COMMUTERS were left stranded on their train after a passenger became ill.

The 5.35pm c2c service from London Fenchurch Street had to wait at Basildon station whilst an ambulance made its way to the scene.

This had a knock-on effect on later trains which were unable to get past to continue their journey.

An ambulance arrived at the scene by 6.30pm and trains were able to move again by 6.40pm.

At least the Ambulance came. A freind of mine on Tuesday had to go to hospitail. The ambulance didt come so after twenty mins they called again and was told to get to A&E there self. Foutunatly there was a wheel chair avaliable and Thames way Busses Took a bus out of service to get him to Basildon hospital where he was seen and admitted within one hr and is still currently there on a ward. I said they should have gone to the Echo. Thames way buss becomes ambulance :)

When I worked on the railway as a Guard, I had a passenger taken ill and in need of an ambulance. Fortunately, there was also a Doctor (GP) on the train to assist. We were delayed by 10 minutes, and I got Thanked for my actions, and not ONE single complaint. That made a change.

This contains the most extraordinary amount of spelling mistakes for such a short paragraph. Unreal.
