Homeless Hero Who Pulled Nails Out Of Children’s Faces Is Offered A Home

It was a selfless act amidst all the chaos and fear on Monday night. Stephen Jones, a homeless man, was sleeping near the venue on Monday night when he heard a huge bang, which he initially thought was a firework.  The hero described how he pulled nails out of a little girl’s face shortly after the bomb went off which killed 22 people. Speaking to ITV, he said: “It was a lot of children with blood all over them – crying and screaming. We were having to pull nails out of their arms and a couple out of this little girl’s face.”

Stephen’s heroic actions caught the attention of West Ham co-chairman David Sullivan and his son who set out to track down the 35-year-old so they could reward him for his bravery. Writing on Twitter, David Sullivan Jr wrote: “Me and dad want to rent the homeless man in Manchester a house for 6 months to help him get on his feet. If anyone can help us get in touch much much appreciated. Such a selfless act needs rewarding. Please tag anyone who can help us.”

A few hours later, David updated his posts to say: “WE HAVE FOUND STEVE ! Shows the power for good social media has. Thank you to all those involved, you have helped change a man’s life.”
