The hunt is on to find the mystery Fife couple who stepped in to help a holidaymaker who had collapsed after falling ill at a local beauty spot.
Stewart Boyle and his wife Rhona, who regularly visit the Kingdom to stay at their caravan close to St Monans, were enjoying a leisurely stroll at Kilconquhar when Stewart suddenly collapsed.
Thanks to the quick thinking actions and public spirited nature of a couple they had just been speaking to, Stewart received first aid and comfort until he was able to go to hospital.
The couple from Mosspark in Glasgow, are appealing to Courier readers to help in tracking down the pair so they can personally thank them for their help.
“We were visiting the church at Kilconquhar and chatting to a couple who we had just met when I suddenly felt very ill and collapsed,” explained Stewart, 73.
“The couple had introduced themselves Jim and Sylvia and Jim being a first aider, he immediately took charge, for which we were very grateful.
“They stayed with me for about 15 to 20 minutes while my wife went to get the car that was parked some distance away in the village so she could get me to hospital.
“In all the upset we never got to say how much we appreciated their assistance and are hoping Courier readers know who the couple are so we can thank them both and let them know that I’m now feeling much better.
“All we know is that they were called Jim and Sylvia and they lived in Leven and they were at the church graveyard looking to find two family members who they thought were buried there.”
Regular visitors to Fife since they purchased a caravan at St Monans three years ago, Stewart and Rhona said they hope someone will know the kind-hearted mystery couple so they can express their gratitude.
“I’m sure they’d be wondering what happened to me so it’s be lovely to meet them again just to say thanks for their help.”
Anyone who recognises the couple is urged to get in touch with the Courier, which will pass on the details to Stewart.
