Letter: Walkers Beware!

I was walking Friday in front of Concordia’s Henry F. Hall Building on De Maisonneuve Blvd. W. when I tripped on bolts, each two inches in height.

They had been left embedded in the sidewalk after the bench they anchored was removed.

Concordia students rushed to my aid. One held a scarf to my bleeding head, another called 911 and the third called Concordia security. When security got there, the guard took over holding my head. We all waited for the ambulance to arrive.

Kudos to the Concordia students and security, paramedics and ER at the Montreal General Hospital.

Shame on the City of Montreal workers who left four bolts embedded in the sidewalk.

Later Friday, a flowerpot and yellow tape were placed around the tripping hazards. Walkers beware!
