Thankful Mum Appeals For Heroic Cyclists To Get In Touch

Monday August 18 2014

A MUM has appealed for the two cyclists who helped her injured son after he fell into a stream to get in touch.

Leeanne Abbott's 11-year-old son, Bryce Moore, was playing with friends near the Trans Pennine Trail at Elsecar before falling 15ft into a rocky ravine at the end of last month.

Bryce - who landed in an ankle-deep stream - sustained a broken left shoulder and suffered severe grazes to his left elbow and hip, which both required stitches.

He was helped by the two cyclists who were travelling along the trail, before they heared Bryce's friends' calls for help.

They stayed there, reassuring Bryce and called for an ambulance.

"The two men were simply cycling past and saw what was happening," said Leeanne, 34, of Welland Crescent. "They helped my son and stayed with him even when I and the paramedics arrived.

"They said they had 25-30 miles to cycle home so they may not be from Barnsley. I know one is called Johnny, but I'd love them to get in touch just so I can say thanks for what they did."

Are you one of the cyclists who helped? Get in touch with josh@wearebarnsley.com if you know who the heroic pair are.
