Waitress Calls Cops When Elderly Customer Doesn’t Show Up For Days


This is one of the reasons why it would be nice for all of us to keep an eye out for our neighbors or the old people who live alone down the road we haven’t seen for quite some time.

Meet Doreen

87-year-old Doreen Mann is a pensioner from Essex who got saved by a waitress in a next-door cafe.

A Regular Customer

Doreen became a regular customer at Tomassi’s in Southend when she started living alone. She usually comes in on weekends to get a slice of her favorite cake.

Her Waitress

Sonia Congrave has been a waitress at Tomassi’s for more than 15 years. She always notices Doreen whenever she visits during the weekend.

She’s Gone

When the time came when Sonia hadn’t seen Doreen for some days, she thought maybe a cousin of hers was in town, but when the old lady didn’t show up for her Saturday routine, the waitress figured she had to call for help.

What Happened To Doreen

It turns out when Doreen went into her bathtub at 9:30 AM on October 7, she suddenly felt she couldn’t move her legs. She tried to shift and stand up but her legs were just not responding.

She Couldn’t Call For Help

Doreen lived alone. After her husband was moved into a care home, she had since been tending to herself for years.

How She Survived

To survive, Doreen filled her tub with warm water or covered herself with her towel. For four days, she had to rely on tap water to keep hydrated. When the rescuers found her, her knees were bruised from attempts of getting up.

Thanks To Sonia

Doreen told The Sun, “I do not know what I would do without Sonia and the rest of them because it is my second home, they are my second family.”
