David Beckham once again demonstrated he’s the finest man in football with a kindhearted gesture to a paramedic and her patient. Cyclist paramedic Catherine Maynard was treating an elderly patient who had fallen over on Monday when she received an unlikely visitor.
Beckham, who seen Catherine as well as the pensioner waiting for an ambulance 10 minutes earlier, returned with warm drinks in the bitterly cold winter weather.
‘I was waiting with my patient for an ambulance to transfer him to hospital and although I was keeping him warm it was really chilly outside,’ paramedic Catherine Maynard said.’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. I said to the man I was treating, ‘I believe that was David Beckham’.
‘Ten minutes after, he came back using a cup of coffee for me personally and a tea for the patient.’We were both really amused, and flattered. It was terrible cycling about in the cold and I couldn’t believe it when he came back with some hot beverages – I was so chuffed.’Beckham’s gesture went down well with the London Ambulance Service who said: ‘even a gesture as little as purchasing a cup of coffee gets our teams feel appreciated’.Nicely played Becks!
