David Beckham Helps a Stranded Motorist

Be honest: when you see a motorist in trouble on the side of the road, what do you do?  If you keep on driving without even considering lending a hand, you’re like most people.  If you pull over and help a fellow citizen out, you’re more like David Beckham.

A stranded motorist, Paul Long, recently told Just Jared a tale about his being stranded in the middle of a roundabout only to have a generous gentleman pull over and lend a helping hand.  Maybe the people of Kansas City should reconsider their feelings?

“Cars were buzzing past and I had two kids in the back but no-one stopped, no-one came to help,” Long told Just Jared. “After 10 minutes I saw a car had pulled over into a lay-by in the distance. Its hazard lights came on. A figure got out, wearing a hoodie. As he got nearer it became apparent to me it was David Beckham,” he added. “He asked if we were OK and I said, ‘Could you give us a push over to the side?’ which he duly did.”

Say what you will about the pretty boy Englishman, but this isn’t a situation where Beckham knew cameras were watching and decided to partake in a charitable act. It was just a case of a multimillionaire showing he’s still down to earth. Give credit where credit is due.

    usually they’re stuck in the snow, so I figure passing by in a 4×4 will influence their future car buying decisions. that’s a win

    For some reason it feels like famous people are the ones helping out at the side of the road more often than the common man. Maybe they feel like nothing bad will happen to them because they’re famous, while we worry we could get butchered into a lamp shade.

    Probably because they aren’t in a rush to get to work and have a lot of free time.
