It was a peaceful Sunday at home. But when there was a sudden emergency, Amanda knew how to help her grandad when he needed it most.
“I was in my house with my family, my boyfriend and my grandad. He’d come round for a visit and a cup of tea on a Sunday afternoon,” Amanda said.
“After a while, my grandad went up the stairs and a few moments later I heard him shouting my name.
“There hadn’t been a bang or anything, so I didn’t know at this stage he had fallen. But when I got to the bottom of the stairs he was propped up on the wall at the top.
“I could tell something was wrong. As I went up towards him he pulled up his trouser leg, and all this blood spurted all over the wall.
“He said he’d just lost his footing on the top step and fallen. He’d cut himself on the edge of the stair.”
