Man appeals for witnesses after losing his memory

By Mike Cotton, Town Reporter Friday 27th June 2014

A MAN who lost his short term memory when he had an accident and fell from his wheelchair in Barnsley Town Centre can't remember what happened and is appealing for witnesses.

Freddy Ponce, 67, of Manor Way, Hoyland, was crossing the road near to the Co-operative bank in Peel Square when he fell, suffering bruising and swelling, and he has been unable to recall exactly what happened.

He wants witnesses to fill in some of the details, and would also like to personally thank some young people who helped him.

Anyone who saw the incident can contact Freddy or his wife Maria on 351249.
