Injured London cyclist seeks ‘bike minder’ nurse Andrea

  • Comment

A cyclist who was given first aid by an off-duty nurse who subsequently offered to look after his bike while he went to hospital is hoping to track her down.

James Carmody collided with a pedestrian in the Old Kent Road on 9 February at around 6.30pm.

Injured London cyclist seeks ‘bike minder’ nurse Andrea

James Carmody’s bike

He came off his bike, sustaining minor injuries including a bloody nose, according to local newspaper the Southwark News.

He told the paper that an off-duty nurse, whose name he thinks was Andrea, tended to him until an ambulance arrived, when she offered to take his bike home and keep it safe.

Mr Carmody said she attempted to add her contact details to his phone but, in what he believes was a genuine mistake, failed to save the number properly.

He described her as being of medium-height with dark-brown, cropped hair and having a Spanish or European accent, and that she told him she lived near the Old Kent Road.

The nearest hospitals are Guy’s to the north or St Thomas’ roughly to the west.

Meanwhile, his bike is a black B’Twin Triban 540 road bike with orange and black tape on the handlebars.

Anyone with information about its whereabouts can contact Mr Carmody on 07772186189 or
