Woman dies on Dalston Lane pavement as I stood across the road

Woman dies on Dalston Lane pavement as I stood across the road

I witnessed an incredibly sad incident this afternoon on Dalston Lane, between The Narrow Way and Amhurst Road.

I had parked and was walking to Marks and Spencers, when I noticed police and ambulance service with flashing lights in the middle of the road.  Walking closer I could tell paramedics were working on someone on the ground trying to resuscitate them. I didn’t notice any blood, crime scene cordon or detectives.

The car she was a passenger in. Witness said it was an elderly man driving, most likely her husband.

Police and emergency staff did a good job of shielding her and the car she collapsed out of, was obscuring her body from looky looos like me. however people who lived in the houses in front of where she laid, had a direct view from their upstairs window.

They must have worked on her for at least 30 minutes (you could see the action but not her) but I knew it was futile when I saw all but two paramedics rise to their feet with a look of resignation on their faces as they brought out the gurney, but even as they rolled her to into the ambulance they were still still pumping her chest
