Fitness instructor Ellie Farnfield was on her daily commute when she all of a sudden woke up confused at the train station.
Apparently, 27-year-old experienced an unexpected seizure, an event she knew occurred only because of what she discovered in her hand.
Grasped tightly between her fingers was £10 and a hand written note signed “Love, Tom.”

The note read:
“Hi Eleanor. I hope by the time you read this you are feeling better. You had a seizure on the train and I took you off. You didn’t hit your head, but I may have hurt your leg as I walked on it before realizing you were on the floor having a fit! Sorry! I’m also sorry I can’t stay with you now, but here is a coffee to perk you up later and £10 to make sure you get a taxi home. Sorry I don’t have anymore money, so I hope you don’t live far away. I’ve contacted people from your phone and medical help is on its way and you’re with train staff. Wishing you all the best and a quick recovery. Love Tom.”
Tom attempted to reach 14 people from her contact list, eventually notifying a station personal before vanishing.
Now, Farnfield quickly took to social media and is searching for her mystery rescuer to personally thank him.
Farnfield writes on Facebook, “Faith restored in humanity in London last night. Thank you so much to everyone who helped me last night—especially ‘Tom’. Would love to try and find him.”
Major social media sites have since picked up on #findtraintom, including Huffington Post and DailyMail.
The exact cause of seizures are difficult to pinpoint, but many seizures can be classified as provoked or unprovoked. Provoked seizures tend to occur by a head injury, stroke or brain tumor. Unprovoked seizures are usually caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain or a congenital defect. These types of seizures are especially alarming because a person may never see it coming, just like Ellie. Regardless, Tom didn’t need to be a medical doctor to know that she was in danger. Not only saving her life, but also informing her of the event she experienced, was enough to make Ellie bring the social media world together to give thanks.
DailyMail reports that the part-time acupuncture student would like to return the money and buy him a drink, should they ever meet.
With thousands of shares online, Ellie Farnfield will surely find her real-life hero in no time.
Let’s help get Tom that drink he deserves! SHARE the love and pass it on!
