Fort Mill heroes saved an elderly woman last Friday who had fallen near her bed and couldn’t get up, according to a police report.
Police Officers Sercu and Cook responded to a townhouse on Ashebrook Drive at 1:41 p.m. Friday for a welfare check on the 75-year-old resident.
“Upon arriving on scene, officers noticed that the blinds were open in both the front and back of the house,” a police report says. “After knocking several times with no response, officers looking into the front window and saw an elderly woman on the ground at the foot of the bed, unable to get up.”
Officers notified EMS and Fire, and firefighters arrived and breached the door, allowing EMS to get inside and take the elderly woman to the hospital. The report says the house was in good shape and it appeared that she had just fallen and could not get up. It’s not clear how long she had been there.
Social services told police that the woman was released from their care in July 2019.
