A member of the public who wants to remain anonymous, so we will name Barry, called in to express his gratitude for Patrick, whose heroic actions Barry described as having “almost certainly saved my life”. Barry was on his way to Shorecare to take care of a minor injury sustained while he was moving house. He arrived at Smales Farm but could not see where Shorecare was. He saw a Matrix Security officer in a vehicle nearby and pulled over into a car park with the intention of asking him for directions. Before Barry could get out of his vehicle, he saw Patrick starting to move off. Barry’s car was stationary. In his haste, he exited his vehicle and had one foot on the ground when he realised he had not put the car into neutral nor applied the handbrake. The car moved forward on an angle grazing the next car and eventually squashed him between his door-frame and his door. The vehicle continued to move forward and in Barry’s words, “I thought my number was up as it got tighter and tighter.” Patrick had the presence of mind to observe what was happening and to react quickly. He jumped into the passenger door, getting the vehicle into neutral and then into reverse to release Barry. He assisted Barry to the rear of the Matrix Vehicle to recover. Barry did not think he had been injured but noted that he was obviously in shock as he later discovered he had a cracked rib, sore neck and shoulder. Barry wanted to commend the actions of Patrick who has been with Matrix Security Group since 2018. Looking for a rewarding career that makes a difference? Learn more here. Find Your Job Today!
