One sunny day, an old man was walking in the park when he tripped over a stone. Fortunately, a young man was jogging in the park. He quickly ran to help him. He asked whether he was badly injured. The man said that he was all right. He had only a very minor cut on his right knee. The young man was relieved on hearing that. He helped him up and led him to a bench. The young man then applied a piece of medicated plaster over the cut.
After that, he continued jogging, happy that he had done his best to help the old man.
To trip is not the same as to fall. So say that the old man tripped and then he fell. Then say that the young man went over to help the old man.
I agree with you, It should be 'tripped ... and then fell."
