Ed Murray comes to the aid of a fallen bicyclist

Seattle Mayor-elect Ed Murray came to the aid of a bicyclist who had apparently fallen on Lakeview Boulevard East on Capitol Hill just before 8:30 a.m.

Murray was riding in a vehicle with his Seattle police security detail when they came upon a woman who had crashed her bike, said Jeff Reading, Murray’s spokesman. The woman was on the side of the road.

“Ed got out and his security got out and they just stayed with her,” Reading said. ”They had some towels and helped with her face. Asked her some questions then help came.”

The officer assigned to provide security to the new mayor radioed in what they saw and Seattle Fire Department medics responded.

Seattle fire spokesman Kyle Moore said the 24-year-old woman, who was wearing a helmet, fell at the Lakeview overpass and hurt her head.  She was not hospitalized.
