When the Manchester bombing happened last week, a 33-year-old homeless guy named Chris Parker was nearby. And instead of running away, he ran TOWARD the explosion.
He was close enough that it knocked him down. Then he ran in . . . wrapped a kid in a t-shirt . . . and cradled a woman in his arms. Unfortunately, that woman was one of the 22 victims who didn’t survive.
Chris ended up on the news because of it. He said his gut just told him to help people instead of running. So it’s one of the few GOOD pieces of news that’s come out of the bombing. Check this out . . .
After he was on TV, random people started raising money for him online. As of last night, it was up to about $70,000. So he should be able to get back on his feet. If you want to donate, just search for “Help Chris Parker” on GoFundMe.com.
But the best part is his MOM saw him on the news. They hadn’t talked in about five years, and she didn’t even know he was homeless. But now they’ve been reunited. (The Sun)
