'Disgusting' moment Royal Mail postman leaves pensioner, 72, lying in the snow in freezing temperatures because he's too 'knackered' to pick her up

https://video.dailymail.co.uk/preview/mol/2021/02/12/8497546382757875454/636x382_MP4_8497546382757875454.mp4

Shocking video shows the worker ignoring 72-year-old Patricia Stewart's pleas for help after slipping outside her home in Falkirk, Scotland. In the footage, posted to Facebook by Patricia's niece Sheryl Harkins, the postman says: 'I can't help. I'm knackered. Absolutely knackered.' The Royal Mail has now apologised to Patricia and her loved ones for the worker's 'disgusting' behaviour on Wednesday, and are investigating the incident.

    During the week I was just about to drive off in my car when I saw an old lady (84) slip over on the snow and ice,it's just a natural reaction to get out and help.I picked her up and walked her to her home and made sure she was o.k. She had only gone out to get a newspaper,which she didn't manage to get,I then went and got the paper and took it to her.The Postmans actions sum up a lot of people in todays 'I'm Alright Jack' society,perhaps if he had kicked the head off of a snowman things may have been different!

    'Knackered' postman filmed leaving frail pensioner, 72, lying in the snow after she slipped and fell is revealed as 51-year-old who has since been suspended by Royal Mail

    Thomas McCafferty, 51, (right) has been named as the Royal Mail postman who left Patricia Stewart, 72, lying in the snow after she fell from her step while collecting a parcel in Bainsford, Falkirk. The incident was captured on a neighbour's Ring doorbell (left) where McCafferty can be heard telling the pensioner he was 'too knackered' to help her up before he walks away and leaves her on the ground. He has since been suspended by Royal Mail who are investigating the incident.

    The chill factor.

    A 72year old well covered OAP with osteoporosis slips from the top step and bangs her head?
    It’s ok, no other injuries reported, as she cushioned the fall with her head.
    Found ‘ lying’ in the snow. Sitting up is close to lying , about 90 degrees.
    Extremely coherent after that bang to the head. In fact, she looks in good shape.
    What did her doc have to say?

    Royal Mail v Hermes. Takeover?
    Coldest Feb since 1955. Climate change.

    So the actual fall is on the vid too? Should be.

    If not, why not.

    This is the 'arrogant' postman who claimed he was 'too knackered' to help a frail pensioner who fell in the snow.

    Thomas McCafferty has been suspended by the Royal Mail for refusing to assist Patricia Stewart, 72, when she lost her footing and fell down her icy front steps as she tried to collect a parcel he left for her.

    Mr McCafferty, 51, responded to her appeals for help by telling her 'I can't help, I'm too knackered' and then walked away.

    Calling over his shoulder, McCafferty told Mrs Stewart to put on her slippers as he walked off, which had come loose during her fall.

    The incident in the village of Bainford, Falkirk, took place during the coldest February since 1955.

    It came to light after footage from a neighbour's doorbell camera was posted on social media and gained traction worldwide.

    Mrs Stewart's family said the postal worker should be sacked and claimed Mrs Stewart, who suffers from the bone disease osteoporosis and uses a Zimmer frame to move about, could have died.

    McCafferty, who is not the pensioner's regular postman, also failed to alert neighbours as he carried on going about his rounds and didn't bother to alert them to Mrs Stewart's plight.

    He could now face the sack if Royal Mail bosses find him guilty of gross misconduct.

    We like to think we would help each other in need.'

    Mrs Stewart was only rescued when a Hermes driver Karolina Domska, 22, came along 20 minutes later.

    She found her soaked through and sobbing in the snow in her bare feet with her slippers nearby and immediately rallied neighbours to help.
