Ellie was traveling on her own that day.


She had no idea that she was about to have a medical emergency.


After suffering a seizure, she woke up in the hospital to find this note:

“Hi Eleanor.

I hope by the time you read this you are feeling better. You had a seizure on the train and I took you off. You didn’t hit your head but I may have hurt your leg as I walked on it before realizing you were on the floor having a fit! Sorry!

I’m also sorry I can’t stay with you now but here is a coffee to perk you up later and £10 to make sure you get a taxi home. Sorry I don’t have anymore money so I hope you don’t live far away.

I’ve contacted people from your phone and medical help is on its way and you’re with train staff. Wishing you all the best and a quick recovery.

Love Tom”


He even left her a coffee and a few dollars to catch a cab.

Ellie shared her story in hopes that she could locate the mysterious Tom.

“I have no idea who this man was or if he was sitting next to me but I wanted to show how grateful I am to him,” she wrote on Facebook. “If Tom does come forward, first of all I would like to give him back his money and then thank him for what he did. He deserves a lot of praise.”


The story was shared all over social media.


Ellie has yet to find her mysterious benefactor. But, Ellie’s story is an excellent reminder that just a little bit of kindness goes a very long way.
