Four Football Fans Help Elderly Couple After Crash

Wednesday December 11 2013

We Are Barnsley We Are Barnsley

FOUR Birmingham City football fans came to the rescue of a Barnsley couple whose car had overturned.

The incident took place at about 5.30pm near the former Bush Inn on Keresforth Hill Road, Kingstone, after the Reds' 3-0 defeat against Birmingham on November 30.

The football fans helped pull the couple out of the car and stayed with them until medical assistance arrived.

They then headed to the M1 and back to Birmingham without giving their names or details.

Barnsley cricket coach Mark Beardshall stopped to assist as he was driving by.

He said: "These blokes deserve credit. Football fans always get a lot of bad press but they knew what they were doing and really helped this couple, who I would say were in their late 60s.

"They were really shook up and didn't know what to do. Their car was completely upside down but these men were calm and helpful.

"They didn't want to give their names and they didn't want to make a big fuss about what they did, but I thought they deserved a mention for stopping to help and proving that not all football fans are as bad as some people would believe."

What they did was fantastic, exactly what you'd deserve from decent human beings. I don't understand what it has to do with who they support though.
