The thing about heroes is that we only come to know them in our times of need. And sometimes, it’s the people that we least expect to be the hero that show up among the tragedy and save lives.
During, and after the Manchester attack, one homeless man by the name of Steve Jones stepped up and became a hero despite his living situation. He did everything within his power to help the injured after the Manchester attack.
He was nearer to the event than the police and the ambulance so when the attack went down he was first on the scene, along with one of his friends.
He stated that he had to pull nails out of a girl’s face.

This homeless man’s selfless heroism did not go unnoticed. A fundraiser was started to help Mr. Jones and West Ham United owner David Sullivan even said on BBC Radio 5 that he wanted to find Mr. Jones to “help him on his way”. David Sullivan and his son plan to help pay 6 months rent for Mr. Jones.

I’m pretty sure Mr. Jones didn’t do it for the recognition but I must say, he definitely deserves it.
