Blood and horror overtook Clive Silwood’s Clontarf home in the minutes that followed the calamity at his front door.
His visitor’s forearm had been sliced open as it smashed through a glass door panel trying to break her fall on his slippery steps.
Silwood aided her to the living room couch as she gasped pleas to fetch their two week old baby and her older sister from the car.
A neighbour who heard the awful scene rushed to help and nursed her in the bloodbath the room had become.
