David Beckham rescues stranded motorist
Thursday 10 February 2011
Paul Long from Hertfordshire was having a rather bad start to the day yesterday, when his Nissan Primera broke down on a roundabout halfway through the school run. A man in a hoodie approached his vehicle to see if he needed help, who turned out to be David Beckham.
"I couldn't believe it," said Mr Long, who was taking Josephine, six, and eight-year-old Fabian to school. "He asked if we were OK and pushed the car to safety."
Mr Long, who spoke to Richard Bacon on BBC 5 live, added: "We were on the A10 roundabout, which was pretty dangerous, and had been stuck there for about 10 minutes. Eventually I saw a car pull over in the distance and a man in a hoodie got out.
"He pulled the hood down and as he got nearer to the car I realised it was David Beckham.
"My instinctive reaction was to say: 'You're David Beckham'.
"He asked if we were OK and I said we'd broken down and could he push us to the side.
"He asked if we were OK and I said: 'David Beckham, I love you, mate'."
