Homeless hero awarded free rent after saving children following Manchester attack

A homeless man who helped the injured people shortly after the Manchester bombing has been awarded a free place to live. He has been rewarded for the bravery which he showed during the aftermath of Manchester bombing.

35-year-old Stephen Jones, a homeless man, described the event as a total chaos. Mothers were weeping over their children dead body, as he raced to take victims to safety. He said that he could watch children running out while screaming and covered in blood. He knew what he had to do, helping the victims. Mr. Jones cleaned the debris and dirt from the children eyes and then he was revealed to the severity of the injuries. He said: “We were having to pull nails and bits of glasses out of their arms and faces”.

Stephen Jones, a former bricklayer had been sleeping rough on the streets of Manchester. However, he had that humanity to help people in need. This man gained the attention of West Ham United FC co-chairman David Sullivan and his son , who later tracked him through social media. After Mr. Jones got tracked, they offered him a rent-free home for 6 months.

David Sullivan Jr wrote on twitter:

Me and dad want to rent the homeless man in Manchester a house for six months to help him get on his feet. If anyone can help us get in touch much much appreciated. Such a self-less act needs rewarding. Please tag anyone who can help us.

Mr Jones said that he wouldn’t be able to forgive himself if he hadn’t done anything for the victims of Manchester Bombing. He further added that he wouldn’t be able to forget those horrible moments, where he was to face weeping mothers and crying children.
