Dog Walker Suffers Anaphylactic Shock

A woman with a severe allergy had to go to the hospital after she was pelted with eggs while walking her dog in Coventry.

The 40-year-old was with a friend when two men in a white van drove by them and tossed the eggs which struck both of them.

The victim instantly suffered an anaphylactic shock and her daughter had to run to find them in Brownshill Green Road and give her mum her EpiPen.

The incident happened between the garden centre and the residential home near Waste Lane at around 12.15 pm on Wednesday, December 30.

The woman, who’s a teacher and didn’t wish to be named told CoventryLive that she meets her friend regularly to walk their dogs together and they were in Brownshill Green Road when they felt something hitting them and there was a van going past with two men in their 20s pelting eggs.

She said that they weren’t too far from her partner’s house and her daughter was there so she ran down to them with the EpiPen, and she said that she took off her coat and removed as much clothing as she could that had the egg on it.

She said that they then walked back and they could see several eggs on both sides of the road, so they’d clearly tried to get other people as well.

She said that her eyes were watering so much that she struggled to see what make of van it was or get the registration plate, but she was able to make out that it was a small white van with writing on the side and a built-in ladder on part of the roof.

And she said that she’s still feeling the effects of the anaphylactic shock and an ambulance was called out to their home that evening as she had another reaction.

Her friend also suffered a swollen hand in the incident after being struck by one of the eggs.

There’s been growing incidence’s of extreme violence and also gratuitous anti-social behaviour, and Coventry is becoming a truly nasty place to live for many.

This wasn’t children that were hurling the eggs, these were fully developed men – if it had been children, we could have argued that they didn’t know any better, but then some people just don’t think of the consequences of their actions.

And more education is needed in general about this because numerous people think that food has to be ingested to cause injury, but this isn’t accurate at all, and there’s also a loophole in the law because you could say that you had no idea that throwing food could kill someone, but if people were educated about this, there would be no excuse.

My vision on life is pretty broad, therefore I like to address specific subjects that intrigue me. Therefore I really appreciate the world of politics, though I have no actual views on who I will vote for, that I will not tell you, so please do not ask! I am like an observation station when it comes to writing, and I simply take the news and make it my own. I have no expectations, I simply love to write, and I know this seems really odd, but I don't get paid for it, I really like what I do and since I am never under any pressure, I constantly find that I write much better, rather than being blanketed under masses of paperwork and articles that I am on a deadline to complete. The chances are, that whilst all other journalists are out there, ripping their hair out, attempting to get their articles completed, I'm simply rambling along at my convenience creating my perfect piece. I guess it must look pretty unpleasant to some of you that I work for nothing, perhaps even brutal. Perhaps I have an obvious disregard for authority, I have no idea, but I would sooner be working for myself, than under somebody else, excuse the pun! Small I maybe, but substantial I will become, eventually. My desk is the most chaotic mess, though surprisingly I know where everything is, and I think that I would be quite unsuited for a desk job. My views on matters vary and I am extremely open-minded to the stuff that I write about, but what I write about is the truth and getting it out there, because the people must be acquainted. Though I am quite entertained by what goes on in the world. My spotlight is mostly to do with politics, though I do write other material as well, but it's essentially politics that I am involved in, and I tend to concentrate my attention on that, however, information is essential. If you have information the possibilities are endless because you are only limited by your own imagination...
