“Are you okay?” he asked, hurrying over.
“Yeah, I’m fine,” the old lady said “I just took a fall.”

“Okay,” he said, grabbing her arms, “one, two, three, up.”
The woman heaved herself up with the aid of the man, nearly collapsing as she put weight on her right foot.
“I must have hurt my foot when I fell.”
