LONDON — Ellie Farnfield, 27, was on her daily commute when she woke up in a train station, dazed and confused.

She looked down, and gripped tightly between her fingers, she saw a note.

“Hi Eleanor. I hope by the time you read this you are feeling better. You had a seizure on the train and I took you off. You didn’t hit your head, but I may have hurt your leg as I walked on it before realizing you were on the floor having a fit! Sorry! I’m also sorry I can’t stay with you now, but here is a coffee to perk you up later and £10 to make sure you get a taxi home. Sorry I don’t have anymore money, so I hope you don’t live far away. I’ve contacted people from your phone and medical help is on its way and you’re with train staff. Wishing you all the best and a quick recovery. Love Tom.”

Tom reportedly tried to contact 14 people in Ellie’s phone list before he was able to notify train station personnel about her condition.

Farnfield quickly and gratefully took to social media to find her secret savior.

Her story has gone viral, but ‘Train Tom’ has yet to be located.

The search continues, using #findtraintom.
