Becks to the rescue as man’s car breaks down on English roadFebruary 10th, 2011 - 11:43 am ICT by ANI
London, Feb 10 (ANI): A father-of-two has said that he was in “absolute awe” when soccer star David Beckham stopped to help him with his car, which broke down on a Hertfordshire roundabout.
Paul Long said the former England captain was the first motorist to pull over and assist him with his Nissan Primera in Ware this week.
“I couldn’t believe it,” the BBC quoted Long as saying, who was taking Josephine, six, and eight-year-old Fabian to school.
“He asked if we were OK and pushed the car to safety.”
“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.
“When we’d pushed the car to safety - and I have to say another man stopped to help by this point - he asked if we were OK and I said: ‘David Beckham, I love you, mate’.
“All the way through he was smiling.
“He got us out of a sticky situation, it could have been quite nasty,” Long added. (ANI)
