David Beckham Treats A Paramedic And A Senior Patient With Hot Drinks
David Beckham, once again, showed his soft side to some random people he met every day. This time, he was giving treats to a paramedic and an old patient near Endsleigh street in central London on Monday.
In a report from The Guardian, the London Ambulance Service revealed that former United Manchester player buys tea and coffee for the paramedic, Catherine Maynard from the Cycle Response Unit, who was on duty rescuing an elderly man who had fallen down.
"I was waiting with my patient for an ambulance to transfer him to hospital and although I was keeping him warm it was very cold outside. All of a sudden, I looked up and saw someone who looked like David Beckham walking past us. He said hello and got in his car," she said.
At first, Maynard was held in disbelief saying, "I said to the man I was treating, 'I think that was David Beckham'. Ten minutes later, he came back with a cup of coffee for me and a tea for the patient."
"We were both very amused, and flattered. It was awful cycling around in the cold today and I couldn't believe it when he came back with some hot drinks - I was so chuffed."
After the incident, the London Ambulance Service talked about the incident on Twitter. The post contains a photo of the football player and Maynard with the caption saying, "Thank you David Beckham for buying a tea and coffee for Cycle Paramedic Catherine and her patient #buyitlikebeckham," as mentioned in US Weekly.
As for the senior patient, he was said to be taken to the hospital for minor injuries.
This is not the first time that David Beckham did a good deed to a random person who is outside his duties being a UNICEF Ambassador of Goodwill.
In 2011, the athlete-fashion icon is reported to have helped a motorist whose car had broken down somewhere Hertfordshire, southern England. Beckham, who is driving that time, pulled over and helped the distressed man, The Express Tribune said.
