‘I know what happened, he was protecting a friend over a silly beef which turned violent.’
‘It was traumatising.
‘It took half an hour for the ambulance to arrive even though there are hospitals all around.
‘I spoke to the person who called the police and he said it took them so long to get here.
‘The police were all on him trying to resuscitate.
‘All I could see were his feet and lots of blood.
‘I’m a mum, for me this is so sad, that’s someone’s child. That’s someone’s baby.’
‘People saw him fall down and try to get to his feet again,’ witness Mark Gettleson told the Evening Standard. ‘Police and paramedics tried to resuscitate him for a long time, they did everything they could.’
