Doctor Follows Trail Of Bloody Footprints And Saves Two Teens

An off-duty doctor saved two teenagers who had been stabbed after he followed a 100-metre trail of blood through a shopping centre. What a hero.

Doctor Yasin Fatine was in The Mall in Luton last Sunday when he saw a police officer run out of Burger King.

The doctor told Metro, he knew something bad had happened immediately but was unaware how serious it was until he saw the long trail of bloody footprints.

He said: "That's when I thought, 'great, I might need to help out'."

After following the footprints, the junior doctor, 29, found a crowd of people gathered around four police officers. In the middle of it all were two teenagers, lying on the floor and bleeding heavily.

"Blood was everywhere," said doctor Fatine. "One of the boys was bleeding from his forearm, and the other from just above his right knee.

"I wasn't too concerned about the arm injury, as he was sitting up and the wound was being dealt with.

"But the boy with the leg injury was still losing blood and he was becoming very pale and delirious."

He spotted that the bandages the police had applied were not stemming the flow of blood from the wounds, so he took a belt from one of the boys and wrapped it around his leg, just above the wound.

Thankfully, the belt did the trick and helped to slow down the loss of blood.

Dr Fatine then quickly checked over the teen to see if he had been stabbed anywhere else, before waiting with the boys until the paramedics arrived.

The two unnamed teens, both 17, were rushed into hospital where they were treated for serious but non-life threatening injuries.

One of the teens has since been charged with violent disorder, while the other is in hospital under police arrest, the Metro reports.

Dr Fatine went to visit the boy with the arm injury in hospital the next day.

The doctor said: "I'm glad they're doing well. But things could have gone wrong very quickly, and people need to be more aware of the consequences of their actions."

Detective Inspector Jackie Dadd told Metro: "This was a really disturbing incident and it has obviously had an impact on those shopping at the time, however, we don't believe this was random attack.

"Such behaviour is unacceptable and we are committed to bringing those responsible to justice."

Police in Bedforshire are now asking anyone with information, photos or videos of the incident to get in touch by calling 101.
